University of Toronto Libraries
As one of the leading research library systems in the world, and the largest in Canada, the University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) provide access to knowledge, preserve and develop specialized collections and provide facilities that stimulate learning and discovery. UTL connects the great minds of our students and faculty with great minds from other times and places. We are extremely fortunate to have inherited outstanding libraries, and with the support of our community, we look forward to providing the collected wisdom housed here to future generations of students and researchers.
At the University of Toronto Libraries, students are on the leading edge of life-changing innovations, exciting partnerships and opportunities, research breakthroughs and journeys of self-discovery. Your support makes it all possible.
