Omni logoUniversity of Waterloo Library is one of 14 members of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) coming together to create a single academic search tool called Omni. Learn more about the project on our Omni website.

Some of the things that Omni includes:

  • Waterloo’s print and electronic resources including peer-reviewed articles

  • Phased-in WatIAM authentication
