I would like to extend a very warm welcome to both new and returning students and encourage you to make the Library an important partner in your academic success. The Library consists of the Webster and Vanier libraries and the Grey Nuns reading room.
We have a team of dedicated librarians and staff ready to assist you with a variety of services, such as subject-specific research across our comprehensive print and digital collections, the use of our interlibrary loans services, or simply the borrowing a laptop or tablet. Whatever your needs or your inquiry, please feel free to ask us, either in person or through LIVE CHAT. We are here to assist you!
You are also encouraged to visit the new Technology Sandbox where you can try out emerging technologies and cutting-edge equipment such as 3D printing, electronics or digital music. During the winter 2018 term, the Sandbox will offer several workshops, among them, 3D Printing 101, 3D Modelling 101, Arduino 101, and Raspberry Pi 101. Try it out! Course textbooks are located in the Course Reserves Rooms at the appropriate library. You can simply zero in on your course code on the shelf and check the books or course packs available there. Alternatively, you can log into the Course Reserves system to see a list of all courses you are currently enrolled in. Select the course you want and check if your professor posted any readings for that course. Upon request of the course instructor, the Library provides online access to course readings to all students enrolled in the class. Both Course Reserves are opened 24/7. We are eagerly looking forward to the Webster Library Celebration scheduled for Friday, March 23rd. We plan to mark the completion of this major three-year Transformation in style! Stay tuned, you’ll be invited!
As always, I welcome your thoughts on how Concordia Library can continue to address and best serve your academic needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish you a most productive winter 2018 term!
Dr. Guylaine Beaudry
