About Our Libraries

Welcome to Memorial University Libraries! We’re here to help you. We have 6 locations with specialized resources, skilled staff and librarians, and an incredible wealth of information to support teaching, learning, and research at Memorial.

We have built well-respected collections in many areas: Folklore, Marine biology, Irish studies, Polar studies, Maritime history, Marine technology, and many more. And no one in the world has a better collection of resources about Newfoundland and Labrador, from the sublime to the surprising. Who has Joey Smallwood’s shoes? We do!
