Library support for teaching and research excellence
Using the Library effectively is key for both students and Faculty who wish to excel. We offer many services aimed at giving students and Faculty the resources they need. If you are a new Faculty member, or would like a more in depth guide to how the Library can help drive success, please visit our Faculty Library Guide. Your University of Winnipeg Faculty card is also your Library card, which allows you certain borrowing privileges.
Each department has a subject specific Librarian, who is responsible for collection development, Faculty liaising, and instruction. You are welcome to contact them to discuss material requests, new course development, and instruction requests.
The Library offers many materials to support your courses.
- Our subject guides are helpful to include with course syllabi to encourage students to seek discipline-appropriate scholarly materials.
- Faculty can place materials on Course Reserve to give all students in their course a fair opportunity to access course readings and other resources. As well, Faculty can place personal copies of material on Course Reserves.
- Our Copyright Office provides guidance on using copyrighted materials on campus.
