Print collections

a display of book covers of Inforum books

Most of the Inforum print collections can be found in the 4th floor stacks.  Most items may be borrowed.  Collections are made up of:

  • Course Reserve collection
    Items are from iSchool course reading lists.
  • General collection
    We are in the process of switching from Dewey to Library of Congress, so call numbers may be in either scheme. Stacks are clearly labelled.
  • Periodical collection**
    Current year only. Past issues may be requested from Downsview off-site storage.
  • Reference collection
  • Juvenile collection
    This highly selective collection of children’s books focuses on information and cultural heritage organizations, selected classics for early to teen readers, and books that demonstrate special publishing or binding techniques
  • Subject Analysis Systems (SAS) collection
    This historical collection is kept in on-site storage.  Request at the Information Desk
  • Other special collections
