About the library

The library of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto supports graduate studies, initial teacher education, professional development, and research and teaching in the field of education. The relationships between research, theory, and practice require a unique collection of library resources and services.

The library has the largest collection of education materials in Canada, including an extensive research collection, education journal titles, media resources, current and historical curriculum materials and textbooks, and specialized collections of children’s literature, modern languages, and women’s studies in education.

In addition to our specialized collections, staff at the OISE Library provide research consultations, customized library instruction, and support for all aspects of research, teaching, and learning for the OISE community, education practitioners, and the public.
