“With the semester coming to an end I think students need to be reminded or understand that other students come to libraries as QUIET spaces to study. There are not many places on campus that students have as quiet spaces. Could you please remind students to keep their conversations to a minimum especially while in these locations. It is quite distracting having other students having personal conversations nearby.”
At the library we recognize that there are different learning styles as well as a variety of approaches to research and studying. In order to accommodate all learning styles, we have established a variety of library spaces across our branches.
Of our seven locations:
That all being said, we do expect everyone to remain respectful towards their fellow students. If you ever find that a disruption in the library is too much please do not hesitate to approach a staff member and let them know. We do try to manage noise level in relation to each type of space.
We understand that sometimes it isn’t convenient to let a staff member know in person; you can also text/IM our AskUs service and the person on the other end can direct the noise complaint to the appropriate staff for you.
Would you like to learn more about librarianship or explore it as a possible career path?
This winter term The University will be offering a new class, The Internship in Library and Information Studies (INCC 380.3).
The internship will be to introduce undergraduates to professional librarianship, with an emphasis on an academic library setting. Interns participate in seminar discussions as well as appropriate, meaningful work in order to advance projects in the University Library while earning course credit. The course consists of a weekly 2-hour discussion-based seminar (which will include guest lecturers and student presentations) and 70-75 hours on site under the joint supervision of the instructor and a workplace supervisor.

Registration for the 2016-2017 academic year opens in June, we look forward to seeing your application!
Pre-requisites: 60 credits and permission from the instructor.
