Welcome to UVic Libraries!

The Mearns Centre for Learning - McPherson Library is located at the heart of  campus.  Normally we would be able to welcome you in the building as part of your  orientation to UVic, but things are different now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Check out the UVic Libraries 360 tour below to familiarize yourself with some key academic  supports that UVic Libraries has to offer you. Even though the library buildings are largely  closed to the public, we're here to help you in whatever ways we can.
