Educational Resources


All registered students have access to the McGill University Library system. This comprises well over three million volumes in 14 libraries, two reading rooms, and a number of affiliated collections. McGill's virtual library consists of an ever-expanding network of electronic databases plus some unique McGill collections. MUSE: the Online Catalogue is the key to print and electronic resources of the McGill Libraries and is accessible from the Library's Website at McGill Libraries' electronic databases may be searched on computer workstations in any library. Most can also be accessed remotely from computers on or off campus. The Library has around 600 on-line databases currently available, mostly indexing and abstracting resources. In addition, McGill students have access to approximately 14,000 full-text journals (JSTOR, ScienceDirect, Project MUSE, Kluwer Online, Lexis-Nexis, IEEE, Web of Science, etc.) and over 80,000 e-books as well as hundreds of numeric databases. The Humanities and Social Sciences Library, located in the McLennan-Redpath Library Building, is the largest library and houses the Information Commons and Info-Cafe. There are separate libraries for law, health sciences, and physical sciences and engineering, as well as specialized libraries in various fields.
