Hi everyone! My name is Gajani and I am a 2A student in the Biotechnology/CPA program. This is my first term as a Library Ambassador!

2017 Davis Centre Library renovation plans

The Davis Library renovation team has been working hard with architects from Walter Fedy and the Campus Advisory Committee. Guided by student feedback and the vision for the revitalized library, we have created a phase one plan that addresses the most critical issues.

So, what’s included in the plan?

Washroom renovation and a new universal washroom

2017-2018 Porter Renovation Plans

As you may have heard by now, renovations are underway at Dana Porter Library. We anticipate that all work within Porter will be completed by the beginning of March and are scheduled to break ground on construction by the end of August. Only two floors will be affected by the construction work: the 3rd Floor and the 5th Floor. Our hope is that this renovation will allow the 3rd Floor to someday become a new, revitalized space for the Library Mission to support:

A great big thank you!

It has been an exceptional year of transformation – with much more to come!

Following the departure of our University Librarian, two Associate University Librarians, 7 retirements, and in the midst of vigorous recruiting and numerous projects, everyone on the Library has been affected by – and facilitated – the many changes underway.

A Vision for the Revitalized Library

The renovation team, with input from students, users, staff and the Advisory Committee, created a shared vision describing how we hope the libraries will look and feel by the end of the third phase of the revitalization project.
