The Asian Library will close at 5:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday from September 4 to accommodate upcoming upgrades and renovations. The renovations, scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2019 will allow for improvements to student study areas, seminar space and programming.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to improve spaces and services for faculty, students and the community.

Any questions about the renovation can be directed to Shirin Eshghi, Head, Asian Library.

The Asian Library will undergo extensive renovations to its top and main floors starting in the Spring of 2018 that will allow for improvements to student study areas, seminar space and programming.

Beginning March 1, access to the upper floor of the Library will be restricted. Essential items in the library’s collection have been relocated to the lower floor to facilitate use, while all other material has been moved off-site and will be inaccessible for the duration of the construction, expected to be completed by early 2019.

Once construction is complete, material selected to return to the library will be returned gradually. Low-use material will be re-directed to PARC, our on-campus storage facility where they will continue to be available for check-out. Items moved out of the library will start to be available either back at the branch or in PARC by early 2019, with access to the full collection expected by summer of 2019.

Users requiring access to materials moved off-site are encouraged to use InterLibrary Loan in the interim.

Any questions about the renovation can be directed to Shirin Eshghi, Head, Asian Library.

 

We are excited to announce that the corridor and atrium on the 3rd and 4th floor of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will receive upgrades and renovations starting from Tuesday, Febrary 7, 2017. The Routine Capital funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education has been made available for this project to replace the flooring in the corridors and carpet in the atrium spaces.


Renovation Details:

Renovations: February 7 – March 31, 2017

Locations: 3rd and 4th Floor Corridors and Atrium

Floor Plans

3rd floor corridors and the Qualicum Room

4th floor corridors and the Golden Jubilee Room


The corridors will continue to be open and available for access. Contractors will be on-site and will begin to remove furniture in the corridors of the 3rd and 4th floor. During this time, study spaces in those corridors will not be available. We understand that this timing is not ideal for renovations, as students may be impacted. However, every effort will be made to maintain available study space for students and minimize disruptions to building users.
