Need research support for remote learning? The Virtual Reference Desk will allow you to book a 20 minute Teams meeting with an OCAD University librarian to discuss your own individualized research needs. Regardless of the department, program, or course you’re enrolled in, we’ll be able to help you make sense of research and learn how to navigate our online collections.

When: Available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 11:00 am to 7:00 pm; and on Wednesdays, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.

How: Simply go to the Library’s “Contact Us” ( page, select the Virtual Reference Desk bookings link, then choose the time that works best for you. We’ll send a confirmation email and an invitation to the Teams meeting.

With the Virtual Reference Desk, in addition to the chat-based Ask a Librarian service and the Library Research ( email, the OCAD U Library is here to help!
