Library

Did you know that the James A. Gibson Library has over 670,000 books, 56,000 maps, and 26,000 sound recordings and videos?

Did you also know that Brock graduates are welcomed to use the Brock Library facilities, at no cost.
 
In 2006 the Brock University Alumni Association successfully formed an agreement with the James A. Gibson Library to offer complimentary borrowing privileges to Brock graduates on an on-going basis. Access does not include the reserve collection or electronic databases due to the restrictive licensing agreements. Inter-library loan privileges are available at a fee of $50 per annum and other library services for alumni are constantly being investigated.

Continuing Education & Community Learning

Brock University Continuing Education / Community Learning are departments dedicated to encouraging a culture of curiosity and learning engagement in the Niagara region. Our programs use a non-traditional approach to education that embraces the real-life experiences of all members of our community.

Continuing Education offers non-credit discovery courses ranging from languages to computers to health and wellness. Alumni discounts are available to Brock University graduates.

Community Learning provides public conversations hosted in local cafés, schools, art galleries, museums and senior residences to discuss open-ended topics relevant to this time of global change.

Our Conversation Cafes begin with a short guest presentation to frame the issue, and are then led by a moderator who guides participation and encourages everyone to take on the role of both teacher and learner. Participants are welcome to listen or share thoughts based on their own knowledge and experience. All conversations are free, donations are appreciated.
