XIV--General Information



The University's collection of books, journals, documents, maps, microforms, films, video and audio materials is administered in the McLaughlin Library building, located in the centre of the campus, and in a branch in the Ontario Veterinary College. The collection consists of more than 2.1 million equivalent volumes and is increasing at the rate of 50-60,000 per year. In addition, the library has over 12,000 audio-visual holdings (audio recordings, films and video tapes) and over 70,000 maps. Access to the Library's collection and to a wide range of external information sources is available through the TRELLIS automated system, jointly owned with the Universities of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier.


The collection is housed in a modern building, considered among the best in Canada. In a pleasant air conditioned atmosphere all students and faculty have open access to the collection. Both individual and group study facilities are provided. Presentation of the non transferable University Card is required each time a book is borrowed from the Library. This card also provides University of Guelph users borrowing privileges at all other Ontario university libraries.

Each holder of a University of Guelph or special borrower card is fully responsible for all Library material borrowed using that card.

A complete signage program directs the users to materials which are listed in the Library catalogues. Library staff is available to offer special help in the use of a wide range of paper and electronic information resources. Orientation tours and instructional classes in the use of the Library are available the first few weeks of each semester.

Photocopying machines are located throughout the Library. Please refer to the Library's information sheet 'Copyright Guidelines'.

Regulations and Hours

A series of leaflets detailing library privileges, services, regulations and hours may be obtained on the First Floor of the Library.
