High school teachers

Does your high school class have an upcoming research assignment? Would you like to experience research in a university library? If yes, consider bringing your class to visit the University of Toronto Scarborough Library.

Details of a typical visit to the UTSC Library

A visit to the UTSC library generally takes about 2 to 3 hours and includes:  

  • A 15-minute tour of the library
  • A hands-on library orientation to help students find books and articles for their research
  • Guest logins available for the day of the visit only; library borrowing privileges are not available

You can stay on campus for lunch as well. Students can bring their own lunches or purchase food at UTSC.

  • Provide a copy of (or details about) the research assignment the class will be working on
  • Teacher must be present during the entire visit to supervise the activity of students and monitor noise level of students

Requirements for visiting students

  • Students are encouraged to bring their own USBs to save copies of articles or scanned library materials; free scanners to pdf are available
