Use the Library
The University of Winnipeg Library provides access to hundreds of thousands of books, articles, and much more through our online catalogue, searchable on our homepage. As well as providing access to these resources and special collections, the Library also provides many spaces and services for the use of students, faculty, and the community.
Find descriptions of the study spaces available, links to calendars, and forms to book a group study room.
We provide access to numerous computers in the Library, and off-campus access to our electronic resources for students and faculty. Information on our proxy (for off-campus access) and accessibility tools can all be found here.
There are several black and white and colour printers, scanners, and photocopiers available for use in the Library. This page provides more information about the services available, as well as costs.

The Library provides in-person support at our Reference Desk for questions you may have, located on the Library's main floor. More information can be found on this page. If you are looking for online help with research from finding sources to citing them, check out our detailed Help with Research. Also see our Research Guides and Subject-Specific Librarians.
If you discover materials in the course of your research that are available from other Universities, we offer the InterLibrary Loan system. Requesting materials from other Universities is free for students and faculty, and enables us to provide access to millions of titles. You can request an InterLibrary Loan directly from the catalogue, or find more information and a form at the page above.
This is where you can find materials that your professor has put on reserve for a course. The search defaults to searching by your professor's name, but you can also change it to search by your course. If you are a faculty member looking for information on how to put things on reserve, visit the department page for Course Reserves. Note - some course materials may not be on reserve, but may be found on your course's Nexus page.
