Bigger Things in the WORKS!”

Taylor Library Transformation project 2016 continues!

Taylor Library staff are excited to begin the second phase of Taylor Library’s Main Floor transformation project!

Phase 1 (2015) saw the completion of six collaborative learning suites, each of which have state-of-the-art learning technology (interactive projectors, multi-view display screens, and white boards). The east portico was furnished with comfortable chairs and couches and the banquettes along the north windows allow well lit seating areas for collaborative work.

Phase 2 (2016) will now focus on the rest of the Main floor including the west portico. Based on feedback from our community during winter term, we have created a new spatial design with a variety of learning and seating options to create an inviting, inspiring and collaborative learning and research space that will meet the expressed needs of undergraduate and graduate students from the Faculties of Engineering, Science, Health Sciences and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.

Taylor Library staff want to thank our community for their ideas and feedback on what you would like to see in Phase 2 and we can’t wait for the “Big Reveal” in early Fall. No peeking behind the plastic sheeting!!

Taylor Library remains open throughout Main Phase 2 renovations! The Collaborative Learning Centre (on Ground Floor) and all study carrels (Ground and Lower Ground Floors) are available for you to use.  All Stack floors are also open. Computers are available in the Kellogg Room on Main Floor.

Stay tuned for more updates posted both in Taylor library and through social media.  Facebook Twitter
