The Lusi Wong Library strives to promote success in learning, teaching, and research by providing quality learning resources and services to students, faculty, staff, and researchers. It offers a vibrant environment to foster information access and information literacy skills, empowering everyone to achieve greater success in study and career.

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.

As 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) the Lusi Wong Library patrons have 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. Check out our brochure for a quick overview of the library.
