Ryerson University Library
Ryerson has a modern library, which provides students with access to hundreds of on-line academic and journalistic databases. Its collection of books and printed journals in the Communications area (which includes Journalism) is also strong. Through the RACER interlibrary loan system, Ryerson students also have access to material from research libraries throughout North America. In addition, the Library makes available to students numerous computer workstations with specialized software. For more information, see http://www.ryerson.ca/library
The Metropolitan Toronto Reference Library, a short subway ride from the Ryerson campus, also houses an extensive research collection which is available to Ryerson students.
MJ students are expected to have their own laptop computers with appropriate software for coursework and research. All students are provided with a Ryerson computer account which gives them access to e-mail, the Internet, the library's electronic databases and other services, and course websites. These services are normally available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Computer services may be accessed from home or other remote locations by registered students with an Internet connection.
