Why do I have to sign in to LibrarySearch?

LibrarySearch can customize your experience based on your interests and eligibility.  We recommend that you sign in every time you use LibrarySearch.

Signing in grants you access to the licensed e-resources that are only available to current U of T students, faculty, and staff.  

Current members of the U of T community can login with their UTORid and password. Alumni and other community borrowers* can login with the credentials provided to them.

*Note that licensed e-content is not available to alumni and other community borrowers.
