U of T Resources

The Faculty Toolkit is designed to help new instructors as they begin their work at the University of Toronto but is also an excellent resource for returning instructors, staff and students. As a world leader in higher education, U of T offers support for teaching, learning and research at the institutional, departmental and personal level.

To help you navigate your way around campus, U of T offers an online MAP.

COPYRIGHT AT U of T

Recent Access Copyright Decision and its Impact on the University of Toronto (PDAD&C #3, July 19, 2017)

University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) provides information about copyright at U of T, including Fair Dealing Practices and a list of copy shops licensed by Access Copyright, through their Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office.

It is important to note that the University continues to work closely with the University of Toronto Bookstore to provide course materials to students. To produce a course pack, faculty can contact their usual textbook coordinator at the Bookstore who can explain the process. You may also contact CSPI directly at 416-929-2774 or email info@coursepack.ca.  You are encouraged to contact them for your coursepack needs.

Course Reserves and Syllabus Service
Make your course readings available to students while respecting Canadian copyright provisions and existing U of T licensing agreements by visiting: https://onesearch.library.utoronto.ca/copyright/course-reserves-and-syllabus-service

All U of T instructors are welcome to use this service but UTSC and UTM instructors have course reserves services specific to their campus. Your request will be forwarded to the appropriate library.
