Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Introducing Omni: a new academic search and discovery tool

Introducing Omni: a new academic search and discovery tool

Beginning Thursday, December 12, Ontario Tech University students, faculty and staff will have access to Omni, a new academic search tool developed by the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL).

Omni offers fast and easy access to a vast collection of diverse, high-quality academic material. The tool is powered by a collaborative system of 14 Ontario university libraries, including Ontario Tech’s Campus Library.

Omni will officially replace the Quick Search Tool in the Ontario Tech Library website, with additional services to follow in 2020.

Why a new library system?   

As a modern academic search tool, Omni will make it easier for users to manage and navigate Ontario Tech’s large and increasingly digital collection of more than 1.1 million resources including print books, e-books, journals, databases and streaming media.

What does this mean for you?

  • Extensive access to a large shared collection of top physical scholarly resources from across the province.
  • Academic confidence in high-quality, authoritative research material appropriate for your academic pursuits.
  • Intuitive experience with full access to your library’s resources through a consistent, easy-to-navigate and responsive system, whether you’re on campus, at home, or on the go.
