The Lusi Wong Library at Renison University College is part of the Tri-University Group of Libraries (TUG) system, a partnership of the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the University of Guelph.

Primo, a search/discovery interface, provides public Internet access to everything found in the online catalogue of all the TUG member libraries, plus hundreds of millions of online full-text journal articles available through the Library. Renison students have access to circulating materials at all of the TUG libraries. Other library resources and services are readily accessible through the University of Waterloo Library’s home page. Users should check the Library Survival Guide to find out "what you need to know".

The Lusi Wong Library specializes in materials to support Renison’s Social Work, Social Development Studies, East Asian Studies, Religious Studies, Applied Language Studies, Studies in Islam, and English as a Second Language programs. The collection of over 10,647 plus items, comprised largely of books and journals, supplements the vast TUG holdings of more than seven million items.

In the 4,300 square foot Lusi Wong Library, opened in Summer 2006, students have access to two group study rooms in addition to more than thirty other study spaces; computer workstations provide full Internet access as well as connection to the university's large academic computing network. Wireless access for laptop computers is available in the library, along with wired access at each of the study spaces.

The Florence Li Tim-Oi memorial reading room in the Library provides a quiet place for students to read and relax.


The Library is located on the main floor of the Academic Centre.
