The OISE Library supports the OISE community through a variety of partnerships, collaborations, and consultations. Our current community initiatives are listed here.

OISE Library Student Advisory Committee

The OISE Library Student Advisory Committee (OLSAC) is a venue for open conversations between OISE students, the Director of the OISE Library, and OISE Library staff. The OLSAC allows students to share suggestions and get involved in the decision making processes that helps shape and improve the Library's programs, services, resources, and facilities. Read more and learn about becomming a member on the OLSAC page.

Guide on Equity Focused Digital Pedagogy and Learning

This Research Guide is a collaboration between the OISE Library and the OISE Equity Committee, with resources on anti-racism, accessibility and international students in Digital Pedagogy and Learning. In this guide, you will find materials focused on creating equitable, accessible and inclusive digital learning environments and resources that share insights into best practices in digital pedagogy. The guide contains blog posts, toolkits, journal articles, podcasts and much more.

Resources for Families during COVID-19

As educators, students, and families are adjusting to online learning during COVD-19, the University of Toronto Libraries is here to support families with children learning from home. We can recommend many licensed and free online resources to help. Please see the list on the Resources for Families with Children Learning from Home page.

OISE Library Care Package

This Care Package is a collection of movies, wellness resources, reading, crafts, games, recipes, plant tips, internet games and beyond that OISE Library staff have compiled during their time in isolation from COVID-19. Inspired by the Smithsonian Institute’s Centre for Asian and Pacific Americans Care Package, we hope that these items bring you as much joy as they have brought us and give you some new ideas about what to do!
