“I only started taking advantage of the services at D.G. Ivey Library in my third year of studies, and when I realized how much it had to offer, I wished I’d started going on day one! The librarian, Jeff Newman, goes out of his way to help students with research queries — he has useful tips and tricks that have been improving my research and writing process.”

Third-year Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity major

The D.G. Ivey Library is one of the best-kept secrets on campus. It’s a bright, quiet study space with access to the tools and resources you need to complete your assignments and study for your tests and exams. 

In the library you’ll find over 100 study spaces, as well as rooms with whiteboards and TVs for groups to study or work on projects together. The library is open seven days a week during the academic year and 24 hours a day during the fall and winter exam breaks! 

The 64 computers in the library provide you with access to the technology you need for getting your assignments completed. Alternatively, you can sign out one of the library’s laptops to take with you to class or your preferred place to work and study. You can access productivity software such as Microsoft Office as well as a suite of assistive technology, including JAWS, ZoomText, Kurzweil 3000 and Dragon on the library computers and laptops. Or perhaps you just need a battery pack and a cable to keep your preferred device charged through the day? We have those, too! Into crafting? We also have Cricut cutting machines and heat presses you can borrow. 

Printing for New College students is the cheapest on campus at just 3¢/ page (15¢/page for colour). 

You can also find support for your academic work in the library. Finding the materials you need for your assignments can be complex, especially for first-year students. The librarians — Aneta Kwak, Mikayla Redden, and Jeff Newman — can help you develop strong library and online research skills to enhance your research, writing and other academic projects.
