About the library
The IRHR Library supports the needs of CIRHR faculty, MIRHR and PhD students, and Woodsworth College students in the Employment Relations Program. We also serve the University of Toronto community as a member of the University of Toronto Library System.
Our collection focuses on labour relations and collective bargaining, human resource management, labour law, labour economics, industrial psychology and sociology, women and minorities in the workforce, and includes a labour union archive. It is the only library in Canada with a specialized collection focused on the changing world of work.
