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.

Geospatial Data

The Map & Data Library has an extensive collection of geospatial datasets covering all areas of the world, with a particular concentration on Canadian data. The majority of datasets are available for download by members of the University of Toronto community (faculty, staff, and students) through the Map & Data Library website and Scholars GeoPortal. Selected datasets must be accessed in person. We are happy to provide assistance with locating the appropriate data for your research needs during reference hours.
