Message from the Chief Librarian – Winter term 2022


Welcome to winter term 2022. Although we find ourselves starting another term virtually and with uncertainty, I know there is still the same anticipation of new classes, new ideas and new possibilities. The University Library remains committed to making sure you have what you need to succeed wherever you are located and however you reach out to us  Whether you are a student looking for a safe study space, access to specialized equipment, or expert research help; or an instructor needing digital course readings, open textbook alternatives, or embedded research instruction from a librarian; or a researcher wanting to create a research data management plan, find advice on publication and dissemination, or join our interdisciplinary research collaboratory, the Library’s team of experts is here to collaborate and assist.

The Library has a robust digital infrastructure, and a team with considerable experience working in both virtual and in-person modes. We provide academic programming and services to suit the shifting environment and do so with health and safety always in mind and in action.  

We thank you for your patience with evolving health and safety protocols and for doing your part to help us keep everyone safe.

Wishing you all the very best for a successful 2022 full of learning, new possibilities and ideas.
