Library Resources

Once inside any of McGill’s 13 branch libraries, you’ll be searching through one of the largest collections in Canada. In fact, McGill houses the largest library collection in Quebec!

With group learning spaces, private study areas, and individual desks, you’ll find the research environment you’re looking for, with plenty of space designated just for graduate students. 

The library contains valuable research tools and resources.  With the catalogue and affiliated databases, you can find specific books, journals, articles, locate theses and dissertations, and search material by subject.  Many of these resources are available online.

Each branch library has computers, printers, HA photocopiers, and facilities for plugging in laptops and connecting to the University’s wireless network. Facilities for group studying can be reserved at certain branches.

The library also provides support for graduate research, including resources for sharing your knowledge (i.e., e-thesis submission and conference locators). McGill University Library is also pleased to bring you EndNote, a tool used to store and manage references and citations and to create bibliographies.

The library staff are highly trained and dedicated to providing assistance with finding materials.  You can ask questions in person, by email, or online chat.  Workshops and tours provide targeted help on specific areas.
