Meet Omni: Your New Academic Search Tool
Your access to library collections just increased by millions of items thanks to Omni, the new academic search tool that brings together the collections of 14 partner institutions.

The Beryl Ivey Library, together with our affiliated library partners at Western University, Huron University College, and Kings University College, is excited to introduce Omni, a search tool that will give you fast and easy access to a vast collection of diverse print and digital, high-quality, academic research resources. With Omni, you’ll be able to broaden the scope of your research projects and reach your research goals with ease and confidence.

Omni will be available from library websites on December 12, 2019, and will replace the existing search interface and the Classic Catalogue.

While we are making every effort to minimize service disruption during implementation, we will inform you of a few temporary changes to library services in the weeks leading up to the launch. To find out more, please visit our Omni page.

With her daughter to care for and her abuela to help support, high school senior Emoni Santiago has to make the tough decisions, and do what must be done. The one place she can let her responsibilities go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Still, she knows she doesn’t have enough time for her school’s new culinary arts class, doesn’t have the money for the class’s trip to Spain — and shouldn’t still be dreaming of someday working in a real kitchen. But even with all the rules she has for her life — and all the rules everyone expects her to play by — once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free.
