As a Lakehead student, you have access to print books from the Lakehead libraries in Orillia and in Thunder Bay (if you need a book transferred from one library to another for pickup, see requesting information). You also have access to print books from most other Ontario universities via resource sharing within the OMNI search system (will work the same as for Lakehead books), and if you are in Orillia, you may also borrow from the Orillia Public Library (contact Orillia library staff at for information).

You also have access to a great number of electronic books, accessible via the OMNI search system on our library homepage.

The Lakehead Library Videos and Tutorials page includes videos on using OMNI to find both print and electronic books.

When you are in the OMNI Advanced Search area, you can use the right side "Material Type" filter to ask to see only Books & eBooks.

The search domains along the top allow you to choose what library systems to search. Lakehead Library & Omni Libraries includes print and electronic books at Lakehead, and also print books at 16 Ontario partner libraries; Lakehead Library includes print and electronic books at Lakehead; Articles and more is any electronic resources - primarily electronic journal articles, but Lakehead ebooks can be found using this domain.


Some examples of ebooks accessible via the Lakehead Libraries include:
