About Innis Library

About the Library

Like Innis College itself, you’ll find the library is a friendly, supportive space. We like to say that we are “small but mighty,” with personalized help for every research need.

We are here to help you achieve academic success

We are open to all U of T students, staff, and faculty, but the focus of our collections, our research support and resources, and our study spaces, is on the following groups:

The Innis College Library is also open to external researchers, international visitors, and members of the public.

A quiet space to study and work

The library is a dedicated quiet study space, with floating platforms that hold study carrels and tables. The carrels on the top level are prioritized for Cinema Studies graduate students, but undergrad students are welcome to use these spaces if they’re not occupied.

Feel free to use the computer lab in the library – you can send files to the printer/scanner/copier station located just outside the library doors.

Please see U of T’s Library Conduct Regulations.
