The Library

The major difference between the university library and other libraries I’ve used in the past comes down to the ability to search countless databases for specific and peer reviewed articles. The Ryerson online library can connect me to an enormous amount of organizations that host scholarly articles for research, which really helps when it comes to researching topics for projects and essays.

High school libraries don’t even compare to this, as they have a limited selection of books and access online to only what’s in the library in the school. Public libraries get better, with a large selection of books and an online system to find the books in the library. It’s the university libraries that have access to scholarly organizations and peer reviewed articles, which are essential for research purposes.
