Library maps page. We have three noise "zones" in the Library:
Make sure you're aware of Library policies concerning
food and drink, and noise in the Library. Be courteous! Even in spaces designed for group study, maintain awareness of your noise levels and allow others to work unimpeded around you.
There are 60 workstations in the library for research, writing, and other uses. See the map above for specific areas and numbers. Visit the
Computer Workstations page for more information. From every workstation, you can:
Book a Collaboration Room
The Library has 8 bookable rooms for your group project or viewing session. All rooms have large-screen monitors. Bookings can be made through the
online room bookings system. For assistance please visit the front counter or call (604) 984-4944. All rooms have large-screen TVs with plug-ins for your laptop.
To use the large-screen monitors in the study rooms, bring your own laptop and plug it in to view presentations, work on group projects, or view a video together.
Room Booking Policies

The 2nd floor of the Library (except Bookable Study Rooms - see above) and the Janet MacDonald Room are designated for silent study. Carrells are provided for individual work. Please take all conversations out of this area, including cell phones and discussion with other students.
The rotunda area of the Library's main floor features flexible work spaces with a combination of movable tables and chairs, quieter study nooks between the stacks, and a laptop table with electrical outlets galore. Configure the work space you need for individual or group study.
The Library features many areas of comfortable seating, including the corridors along each of the windowed walls, behind the IT Services area, and in the peaceful leafy setting of the Janet MacDonald Room (LB109). Settle in and maximize your productivity or just enjoy a good read.
Tucked away down the hallway to the left of the Library Service Desk, the Library classroom (LB119) is a designated study space for groups when not in use for Library Research classes and
Student Success workshops. Featuring a whiteboard and a projector (see the Library Services counter to borrow equipment for it), this space can accommodate larger numbers and a bit more noise. All
Library policies still apply. Please return the room to its original configuration when you're done.
