This is not just one library but several. Of course there are the brick and mortal University of Toronto Libraries but there is also an exciting online version. What this means is that students can access books and materials without having to go to the library and physically sign them out.

One may wonder why so many libraries are needed, but if you are familiar with the vast number of courses and programs that University of Toronto has to offer you will understand why.
