TORONTO, ON, May 25, 2020 - In these extraordinary times Ontario’s university libraries are working together to support our teaching, learning and research communities. Through the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) Ontario’s 21 universities have collaborated since 2002 to provide access to a rich set of digital collections through a robust and innovative digital infrastructure. This shared technological infrastructure, Scholars Portal and Omni, and our history of collaboration have made us flexible, resourceful and responsive in the face of uncertainty.

Dear colleagues,
Like many of you, Scholars Portal staff are currently working remotely to continue to support online library services to university communities in Ontario and across Canada. We are up and running and eager to enable you to provide a strong set of online services to your users.

Please note, this webinar has been postponed until further notice.

People are curious! How did the Omni implementation go?  Please join us for a webinar if you would like to know more about how the implementation went. Speakers will include:
