Bigger Things in the Works!

Bigger Things in the WORKS!” Taylor Library Transformation project 2016 continues!

We are excited to begin the second phase of Taylor Library’s Main Floor transformation project which is part of a larger Western Libraries’ Global Library Space initiative and we need your help!

Phase 1 (2015) saw the completion of six collaborative learning suites, each of which have state-of-the-art learning technology (projectors, white boards, and smart boards). One of the rooms is designated for consultation purposes, where library staff can provide research services for faculty and students. The remaining five are bookable online and available to all students and faculty for group collaboration and study. 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. We are envisioning 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.

We need your help!

We will be compiling all our feedback from this online form and our in-house surveys to develop a new inspiring collaborative and learning space based on what you have told us!
