For centuries, academic libraries were, first and foremost, places where students and faculty members could find and work with books and articles in printed form.
But in recent years, with the proliferation of digital media, the role of libraries has been transformed.
The Laurier Library is the university’s intellectual and cultural heart. It is the place where our community comes to access and interact with information and people across all media, generating new ideas and engaging with the great questions of our time.
We also house the Laurier Archives, keeper of the university’s historical record and legacy as well as leading collections on the environment, music, and the Lutheran Church.
And, of course, we continue to provide the digital resources, books, services and study spaces that inspire our users to achieve excellence in their research, work and lives.
