Wilfrid Laurier University Library appoints two new directors as culture commons initiative gathers momentum
New Robert Langen Art Gallery facility to open in Laurier’s Waterloo campus Library for September 2016
A new home for the Robert Langen Art Gallery will be created in the southeast corner of the main floor of Laurier’s Waterloo campus Library.
Faculty members: submit your readings now for Intersession and Summer Session 2016. When submitting readings, it is a good idea to tag them by week so that the reserve staff are able to prioritize requests and ensure that materials will be ready for your students at the beginning of the term.
The Brantford Public Library will be closed Monday, May 2nd for a staff development day, reopening Tuesday morning.
The Digital Library and Learning Commons will remain open, and Laurier’s Brantford campus Librarians will also be available to students and faculty as per their normal hours. Click here for more information regarding our Brantford services and librarians.
