The Library Wants You!

Student Technology and the new Library & Learning Centre – tell us what you need!

Planning is underway for the Library and Learning Centre, and we would like to hear from students about their technology needs and how to meet them in the new building.

Are your technology needs currently being met on campus? How could technology support for your studies be improved? Come and talk to us about how the new building can best support your learning technology needs.

Let us know in the comments below your ideas for the new library.

More questions? Feel free to contact Alice Swabey at or 403.440.7241
