Message to Students and Faculty regarding COVID-19

Dear Professors and Students,

The library may have temporarily closed its doors but the librarians are still available to assist you with your research and help you access our electronic resources. You can email me,  or schedule a virtual meeting via Microsoft Team.

I invite you to consult the Library's COVID-19 FAQ to learn about available library services during the closure.

The Covid-19 Temporarily Available Resources research guide also lists resources from various vendor that were made available for free during the crisis.

Hathi Trust: The University of Ottawa is now a member of HathiTrust and is participating in the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). This means that while the Library is closed due to COVID-19, current students, faculty, and staff can read digitized versions of more than 860,000 in-copyright print books that have been deposited in the HathiTrust Digital Library.

Please be assured I am here to continue supporting your research and studies. Don't hesitate to contact me for assistance.





The purpose of this guide is to help you identify online and print resources available at the University of Ottawa Library and on the web .It includes links to  key music and multidisciplinary databases, journals, and reference books.

The music collection consists of an extensive selection of printed music, audiovisual materials, sound recordings, books and reference works. All print collections (scores, books) are located on the 4th floor, Morisset Library (in the M section). CDs, choral, orchestra and band music and music reserve materials are located at the main Service Desk (1st floor), Morisset Library.  

Specialized reference assistance is available to music students, faculty and other visitors.
