New Home for Research & Scholarly Communication Services

Along with the many other exciting renovations that took place in the Library during 2020-21 (and continue now with the skylight replacement project), the Research & Scholarly Communications Department moved to a new office space. The completely refurbished suite provides individual offices for each librarian in the Department, a workspace for our library assistant, and a shared conference/teaching area that we hope to put to good use as students and staff return to campus.
