Photo Identification Cards

Photo identification cards are the property of Laurentian University and are used by University faculties, services and staff to identify you as a member of Laurentian and to give access to campus services. These include library privileges, photocopier use, cafeteria, and entrance to the gym. For faculty, these cards are available at no charge from the myLaurentian Hub located on the first floor, R.D. Parker Building (formerly known as the Registrar’s Student Service Centre).


Each year, the library has over 1,000 high school students participate in orientation sessions, and we have space available in the classroom for attractive unit/program promotional brochures and posters. Contact Ashley Thomson, ext. 3322.

Research Assistance

Librarians are available to give you personalized assistance in conducting literature reviews.


An institutional repository (IR) is a database with a set of services to capture, store, index, preserve and redistribute a university's scholarly research in digital formats. As a general rule, IR technology has been developed to support the open access model of dissemination. Laurentian’s institutional repository LU|Zone|UL has distributed and preserved the scholarly work of LU faculty, in addition to Master’s theses and doctoral dissertations, since 2007.
