Innis College Library supports all Innis College Students in their research and study needs – both online and in-person when possible.
It is a bright and quiet study space that is stacked high with floating platforms holding a small computer lab connected to printing services, study carrels and tables, and book collections for Cinema Studies Institute and Writing & Rhetoric Program. Innis College Library Staff (the College Librarian and student library assistants) are always ready to help library users from our Innis College and UofT Communities.
Due to COVID-19, Innis College Library is currently closed at this time. Please check our website for updates on access to the library space. Innis College Librarian, Kate Johnson will be sending out emails throughout the year highlighting services, resources, and tips to help you in your first year, but feel free to get in touch with any questions via email, phone, and when it’s possible in-person.
Welcome to Innis College! My name is Kate Johnson and I’m the Innis College Librarian. My job focuses on support all Innis College Students in navigating the U of T Libraries, develop research skills, cite sources, and finding the information you need (academic or otherwise!). As your personal librarian, I act as a bridge helping you connect with U of T’s over 40 libraries with different kinds of study spaces, services, resources, and library staff with expertise across a huge range of topics. Something that people might not know about me is that I’ve lived in Toronto for most of my life so I'm happy to help you figure out the best takeout, parks, or other adventures in the city. I highly recommend exploring BlogTO’s neighbourhood map.
Currently, I am the subject librarian for Cinema Studies and Writing & Rhetoric programs but I previously had librarian roles supporting Engineering, Dentistry, African Studies, Women & Gender Studies, Psychology, and more across the UofT System. If I don’t know the answers, I can definitely connect you with the best people to help you. No matter if you are located on campus or in a different time zone, I'm here to help via email, phone, video chats, and when possible in person at Innis College Library at 2 Sussex Avenue. Keep an eye out for emails from me with tips and resources to help with your first year at Innis College and the University of Toronto.
