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 or Zoom.

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.





This is a selective guide to books, journals, databases, multimedia and websites for Visual Arts Studies and may also list resources identified for specific courses.

  • Are you starting your research and need help planning your search strategy?
  • Have you already identified specific documents and need help locating them?
  • Are you a faculty member wanting to schedule a presentation for your class?

As your subject librarian, I am here to assist you. Whether student or faculty, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you!
