The impact of giving to Memorial University Libraries

Welcome to Memorial University Libraries

With eight branches, Memorial University Libraries is one of Atlantic Canada’s largest university libraries. In addition to providing access to millions of physical book and digital access to e-books, journals, and other resources, the libraries house several specialized archives and collections, including the largest collection of published materials about Newfoundland and Labrador in the world in the Centre for Newfoundland Studies.

Our Libraries encourage innovation and excellence in Memorial’s teaching and learning, research, scholarship, creative activity, service and public engagement. We are also vital to fulfilling the University’s social mandate to provide access to university education for the people of the province and to contribute to the social, cultural, scientific and economic development of Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond.
