Welcome Back!

It’s orientation week for the Class of 2023, welcome to the Osgoode Hall Law School Library!

The library space is currently closed but we have loads of resources to support you throughout your studies.

All library electronic resources continue to be accessible to support teaching and learning in this new environment. The Osgoode Library has a wide selection of e-books in some of the databases available for the use of faculty and students. You will be required to log in with your Passport York user ID and password.

A list of the databases is available here E-Book Access @ the Osgoode Library.

These interactive video tutorials have been created to help you understand Law Library services and resources. In the coming months, more specialized ones will be posted.

Please continue to check the Law Library website, blog and our various social media platforms for updates on library services and resources.
