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

Where can I find computers with GIS software?

GIS software, including ArcGIS Desktop and Pro, are available on almost all computers in the following libraries on the St. George Campus:

  • Map & Data Library (fifth floor of Robarts, 56 seats; reference help available)
  • Robarts Library (fourth floor lab and first floor)
  • Gerstein Science Information Centre
  • Engineering and Computer Science Library
  • Mathematics Library
  • John W. Graham Library (Trinity College)
  • John Kelly Library (St Michael's College)
  • Pratt Library (Victoria University)
  • Emmanuel Library (Victoria University)

The only computers which do not have these programs installed are computers dedicated to specific apllications, e.g. computers solely used for scanning or using the library catalogue.
