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.

COVID-19: Updates on library services and operations


Our collectionsThe Map & Data Llibrary supports research at U of T in several ways. We build extensive collections of geospatial data, numeric data, maps & atlases and air photos. We advise & assist the research community on locating existing data, collecting your own data, and using GIS and statistical software. To this end, we create online tutorials and run regular workshops.

We are also researchers and research collaborators, with our staff involved in a wide range of research projects. We have a particular focus on historical GIS & data projects, building new digital datasets from the library's historic print collections. Another area of interest is supporting the visualization and communication of data and information. 

We encourage you to get in touch with us to request an appointment for support, or drop in during our open hours
