Five resources at UofGH's Library that you might not have known about

Many students at the University of Guelph-Humber know that our Library offers research help, quiet study spaces and the innovative Learning Lab, but the Library also offers many more helpful tools and resources that you might not know about.

As just one example, many UofGH students are unaware of the breadth of collections at their fingertips.

“Students have access to print and electronic resources through both the University of Guelph and Humber College, the University of Guelph-Humber print collection that is housed in the LRC and the print collections at the other Tri-University Group Libraries, Laurier and Waterloo,” said Nancy Birch, Department Head of Library Services.

Read on for five more resources at UofGH’s Library that you might not have known about.

1. News resources

Did you know that UofGH students have access to online newspapers and magazines, updated daily and available in full-text? That includes such major Canadian, US, and International newspapers as The Globe and Mail, New York Times and The Guardian. You can also access popular magazines including The New Yorker, Toronto Life, and Forbes through Flipster, a digital magazine service.

2. Multimedia resources

The library has purchased access to many streaming video services, image and audio resources. These resources are accessible from on- and off-campus. Kanopy Streaming offers access to documentaries, the Criterion Collection, world cinema, and theatrical releases, while CBC Curio includes documentaries and news reports, and Alexander Street Video features a collection of drama, American history, documentaries, shorts, and PBS videos.
