Accessing the Library Collaboratory during COVID-19:The Province of Ontario has announced additional measures as part of its COVID-19 Response Framework under which they are requiring individuals living in Toronto to restrict trips outside of the home for essential reasons only, and to limit contact with individuals outside of your household.
Research appointments are designed to meet the needs of researchers who require access to specific equipment, collections, software or space, and for whom this need cannot be met through online resources and services. If a request is made, which the Library can meet through virtual services, researchers will be directed appropriately. The Collaboratory is permitting limited and mediated access by appointment only, for faculty and graduate student members. This service is temporarily restricted until May 2021. * This service is for members of the Library Collaboratory only.
Notice: Prior to coming to campus and the Library, the Ryerson Health Screening, available on the RyersonSafe app, must be completed the day of visiting. Confirmation of an approved health status is required upon entering the Library.
Beginning Monday, April 8, and in accordance with Province of Ontario guidelines, the Library Collaboratory is permitting limited and mediated access by appointment only, for faculty and graduate student members. Appointments are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, from 10a.m. – 1 p.m. If your request is better suited to a virtual meeting, we will advise you as such, and schedule one with you.
Appointment lengths may not exceed 2 hours. Submit your request for mediated research appointment at least 2 days in advance. To request an appontment, start here. Your appointment will be confirmed via email within 2 business days. This email will also include important information for planning your visit to the Library Collaboratory.
Individual faculty are free to explore the Collaboratory in whatever area they are interested in, whether to learn about new equipment or peruse their own research. Our goal is to lower the barrier for access to equipment for faculty. Fill out this form to verify faculty/instructor status and for requesting door access.
