Library Services

Laurentian University @ Barrie students and faculty have access to a wide variety of library services and resources at both Georgian College and Laurentian University.

Accessing Electronic Resources

Laurentian @ Barrie students and faculty have access to all of Laurentian's electronic resources (e-journals, e-books, databases, statistical information & more) by using their Laurentian University Consolidated ID (LUID). The LUID is necessary to access LU resources and services (WebAdvisor, LUmail, RACER) on Georgian’s campuses and off campus.

What is my LUID?

Your LUID user name & student number are included in your registration package with your LUmail and Web Advisor information. Laurentian’s Self Serve Password reset is at
