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 mdl@library.utoronto.ca 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.

COVID-19: Updates on library services and operations

Canada

NationMaster

Contains international statistics on large list of topics (agriculture, crime, currency, demography, economy, education, etc.). This site is a compilation of international statistics from a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organizations. The site is compiled and maintained by a team of interested individuals, not by the data collectors directly. It is an excellent way to discover international data sources - consult the sources list at the bottom of each page to access the data from the official source. 

LGBTData.org

Collects information on statistics & data sources in which sexual orientation is included. Mostly U.S. but some international and Canadian studies as well.

National energy use database

In 1991, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) launched the National Energy Use Database (NEUD) initiative to help the department improve its knowledge of energy consumption and energy efficiency at the end-use level in Canada. The NEUD's most important role is to secure the development of a reliable, Canada-wide information base on energy consumption for all energy-consuming sectors.
