Concordia Library is open 24/7 throughout the academic year — the first and only university library in Quebec to do so.
We are at the centre of the action.
Concordia Library is the one place where all students and faculty go. In 2015 we received 2.3 million visits.
We are experts.
Our subject librarians are knowledgeable in all disciplines to help guide students in their research.
We are connected.
Students can access our services online and chat directly with a librarian.
We support studying.
Our reserve rooms offer students access to all course textbooks. We provide 695 computers and tablets. Last year, Concordia Library had 86,000 laptop loans and 12,500 tablet loans.
We are big.
Our collection includes 1.9 million print and electronic books, 100,676 print and online journals, 129,000 government documents, 3,900 musical scores and 62,000 sound recordings, films and videos.
