A Message from the University Librarian

Through these unprecedented times, the Library & Archives has been a steadfast academic support for the advancement of teaching, learning, research, and scholarship. Our success is that of our community, and we are where you need us to be – whether via on-campus library hours or online 24/7. Our dedicated team takes pride in offering quality services as well as scholarly content to meet the ever-changing needs of the MSVU community.

On November 18, 2014 the MSVU Learning Commons officially opened breathing new life in to the E. Margaret Fulton Communications Centre (EMF) where the Library is located. On May 29, 2015 the Margaret Norrie McCain Centre opened transforming the Library into a hub connecting McCain, Seton Academic Centre, and the rest of the physical campus. The renovated EMF space centralizes a variety of academic support areas including Accessibility Services, Counselling Services, Digital Media Zone, IT&S Helpdesk, Library Research Help, Online Learning, Teaching & Learning Centre, and the Writing Centre.

I invite you to reach out to our dedicated team and explore all that we have to offer in-person or online. In an effort to better plan our future in support of MSVU’s newest strategic plan Strength Through Community, we have engaged the campus community in a survey as part of an external review process which will continue into the fall term of 2022. We’re excited for the opportunities that lie ahead and will keep you informed. In the meantime, stay safe, stay well, reach out at any time.
