Services

Library services to help with and support research and teaching.

Library services for people with disabilities include accessible formats of library materials, research assistance, adaptive technologies, descriptions about spaces, and connections with library staff who can facilitate accessing and using the library.  

The library allows you to borrow books, music scores, educational kits, CDs and much more. Learn about how these items can be delivered to you, how to pick up items, and how to return them.  Also, learn about policies about loan times and fines.

Resources to help students with coursework, including course readings (reserves) and research help guides for specific courses and assignments.

Services to support faculty and graduate student teaching, including student research skills instruction, copyright, video booking, and open education resources.

The library offers a variety of technologies to assist the research process, and to make the best use of Library resources. Laurier community members will find wireless internet access, computer workstations, and printer/scanner/photocopier machines at all locations. The Waterloo Library also provides access to media viewing stations, microform viewers and scanners, and other specialized scanning equipment.

Our Library Makerspace hosts workshops in 3D design, sewing, electronics, video editing, knitting and much more. We invite all of our makers to be both teachers and learners, sharing their skills and expertise. We have piloted successful integrations with a variety of courses in partnership with faculty. Laurier makers are invited to drop by to chat, ask questions, show off projects and meet other creative makers. Our regular hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 11am and 1pm to 4:30pm.
