A new and improved library may be on the horizon for UWindsor students, faculty, and staff.
The Leddy Library Master Space Planning Committee is hosting the first of several consultation days over the next six months to determine how to transform the library space into an innovative hub for learning, teaching, research, and creative activity.
Campus partners, faculty, and students are invited to join the committee along with associates from Hariri Pontarini Architects, the firm selected to work with the University on this project, to share their ideas and visions to modernize the library.
"Leddy Library is the heart of this campus and we want to ensure we are meeting as many needs as possible for our academic community,” said university librarian Pascal Calarco. “My hope is that our stakeholders and students will come with their ideas and vision for the library, because we have the ability to transform this space into a state-of-the-art hub for research and learning.”
A consultation session specifically for students, faculty, staff, and community partners will take place Thursday, Jan. 16, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in the Student Research Collaboratory, on the first floor of the main library building, behind the café. Anyone with ideas or feedback for the library is welcome to attend and share their thoughts.
The consultation presentation will be recorded for those unable to attend, and an online feedback form with be available later in January.
