Taylor Library Virtual Tour
The Allyn & Betty Taylor Library serves the Faculties of Engineering, Science, Health Sciences and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.
We are undergoing renovations again this spring & summer!
This summer will see the completion of our hugh renovations started last spring. We will continue with new flooring and lighting in the area near the front doors. A new desk will be installed just west of the front doors as a Student Community Zone to accomodate student groups and clubs activities throughout the school year. The security desk will also get renovated.
New flooring is going in on ground. All the study carrels are inaccessible. The Collaborative Learning Centre is still open and the media tables are bookable.
New flooring is also going in on Lower Ground. All the periodicals are being moved permanently to Stacks 1 & 2.
Our books have been shifted to Stacks 4-6. Check our Floor Plans for call number locations. Reference books remain on Stack 3 and periodicals on Stacks 1 & 2.
Keep up to date with what is going on with: student events, library instruction and workshops by checking out our Student Events Calendar.
