The Library provides assistance to UTSc students in many aspects of their studies and students are encouraged to start familiarizing themselves with this crucial academic resource from the very beginning.

Through its Collections Management and Access Services, the Library provides a wide variety of materials in different media to support undergraduate Programs on campus. The collection consists of over 200,000 books and hundreds of print journals, as well as access to thousands of full-text electronic journals and indexes, Internet resources, maps, slides, music CD's, and videos. Many items for particular courses are made available through Short-Term Loan. As Bladen is one of 40 libraries at U of T, students can also access materials on the St. George campus and beyond via Resource Sharing Services.

Library Systems maintains nearly 100 computer workstations flexible to student needs. Express Internet computers provide access to UTLink, and the Library's catalogues, as well as the Web in general. The Writing Centre Lab allows for word processing and printing; the Language Lab houses specialised language software; and the LINC Lab is used for instruction in graphics, multimedia, and web-design using state-of-the-art computers.

A new and expanded Library of the future is currently being constructed at UTSc. This will be called the Academic Resource Centre (ARC) and will significantly enhance the resources and services available to students. In anticipation of this expanded role, Teaching and Learning Services staff, within the current Library, already provide students with specific instruction in writing (through the Writing Centre), conducting research (Information and Research Instruction Services), and using and developing various multimedia and web programs (Centre for Instructional Technology Development). In order to enhance instruction they also assist faculty with all aspects of curriculum design and implementation, and support innovative projects that facilitate students in the attainment of their educational goals.
