academic community of 62,000 students, faculty and staff, as well as 295,000

collection of over two million items in the social sciences, humanities and
fine arts, and includes government documents, data, sound and moving images,
electronic resources, maps, archives and special collections. Along with
building collections and offering research assistance, the Scott Library
Research and Collections Department has an active information literacy

social context of information, to develop information-seeking behaviours that
transcend specific finding tools, and to think critically about information.
