9novAll DayU of T Library Card Bi-annual Renewal or Request for New Access for SMH Research Staff


Event Details

This is for research staff who:
1. Wish to renew their existing library card or new research staff or
2. Wish to obtain a new UofT library card access.

Terms and conditions for access to the U of T Online Library resource

Online library access, provided by the University of Toronto Library, will be used for the exclusive purpose of supporting U of T faculty member(s) in their research. It is understood that U of T library online library access cannot be used in the support of any other responsibilities or duties that the same faculty member may hold at the Hospital (e.g. patient care or administrative roles for the Hospital). Support for such activities can be accessed through the hospital’s library.


U of T reserves the right to deny and/or suspend access if users are found to be in violation of the stated terms and conditions.


In the past, research staff were granted library cards, this has changed.  The University of Toronto Library now provides hospital research staff (who support the research of doctors who have a faculty appointment at UofT), with a barcode and PIN number, which allows researcher staff remote access to the UofT Library licensed electronic resources. This remote access cannot be used for any other duties with which the individual may be involved.  If research staff require hard copies of UofT library material they can request them through the St. Michael’s Hospital library phone: x5059.

FYI: We do not update U of T Library cards for physicians. We are responsible for updating the list for research staff only.


If you are a Postdoc, please go to the following link to obtain / renew your access:



Again, it is time to update the St. Michael’s list for U of T Library access.

Who is eligible for this service?
Only research staff who are supporting the research done by Principal Investigators who have faculty appointments at U of T.

Staff who work with doctors who do NOT have faculty appointments at U of T are unfortunately sent back to us as they are not eligible for U of T library access.

Please note that all staff who have existing UofT library access with a barcode/PIN numbers, your barcode and PIN numbers will stay the same. The U of T Library will just extend your expiry date.
