Further to Quebec government and university directives, McGill campuses are currently closed. As a result, all library branches are closed until further notice. Library staff will continue to provide virtual reference during service hours. I will also be available via email and virtual consultation. For more information about the closure, please visit our COVID -19 | Library Closure & Service Disruptions FAQ.

Search McGill's Catalog (WorldCat)

The best place to look for books/ebooks available at the McGill Library is using the Library Catalogue:

Your search will cover most of McGill's collection of resources: books, journals, articles, and other resources, in both print or electronic format. Please be aware that not all articles we have access to can be found through WorldCat. If interested by articles, please use a database.
