Welcome to Term 1 2021: SMU Libraries look forward to seeing you in the Libraries and online!


SMU Libraries are pleased to welcome new and returning students to Term 1 2021!

We look forward to working with you, and supporting your teaching, learning, and research endeavours, through digital services and at both libraries on campus. SMU Libraries connect you to the campus community as well as to information, knowledge, and discovery both on-campus and online.

As you get started with the new Term, please take the time to visit the Libraries website to (re)connect with resources, your Research Librarian, and to keep current with our digital and other services. We have a knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate team committed to our Vision which includes advancing research, education, complex problem solving, and cultivating lifelong learning.
