Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

Bits and Bytes: Code of Conduct

Snacking on Bits and Bytes

Code of Conduct:

The Map & Data Library seeks to provide a welcoming, educational, professionally engaging, and safe experience and ongoing community for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Discriminatory language and imagery (including sexual) is not appropriate.

Harassment is understood as any behavior that threatens or demeans another person or group, or produces an unsafe environment. It includes offensive verbal comments or non-verbal expressions related to gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, LGBTQIA2S+ status, disability, use of assistive technologies, physical appearance, body size, physical and mental illness, racialized status, age, class, or religion; sexual or discriminatory images; deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from the event, or banning the offender from future events.

If you believe that this code of conduct has been violated, please contact us at with your concerns. 

This Code of Conduct is based on the Code4Lib Creative Commons Code of Conduct. We also affirm the University of Toronto Libraries Online Community Guidelines, the University of Toronto Library Conduct Regulations, the Student Code of Conduct, and the university guidelines on the Appropriate Use of Information and Communication Technology.
