We hope that you had a fantastic summer, even if September seems to have arrived too quickly.

Here’s a quick refresher on how useful the Library will be for you this semester. Most of these hints start at the Laurier Library homepage (Hint, hint… bookmark the library's website).

  • The Library has prepared a user guide for first year undergraduate students
  • Professors often post readings on our course reserve system, which can be accessed from the link labelled "Course readings" on the top right corner of our homepage
  • The Library is a great place to study – we have spaces for individual and group study across all of locations at Waterloo, Brantford and Kitchener (more information on study areas)
  • Did you know there is a subject librarian who can help you find resources (articles, books, etc.) for that research paper? We can even meet with you one-on-one so email us directly, or look us up on the subject guides.
  • We offer online chat if you have any questions. Just look for the Chat and Ask Us box on most pages.

For the most up-to-date information on new or modified Library services, please consult the Library’s Covid-19 Services Update page.

Of course, there so much more to the Laurier Library. When you need help, we’re here and have you covered. We just know this is going to be a wonderful semester, so welcome back!
