" The most important resource of the TriUniversity Group of Libraries is its staff. It is their expertise, dedication and commitment to service that have made the collaboration both possible and successful."

What is TUG

The TriUniversity Group of Libraries (TUG) is a unique example of administrative co-operation among the Libraries of three Ontario universities; the Universities of Guelph and Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University. Informal co-operation among these three has been in place for nearly thirty years; however in the past decade, rapidly advancing technology has enabled co-operation at a completely different level, and the result has been a slightly more formalised agreement to work together for mutual benefit.
