Academic libraries are often described as being the “heart” or “crossroads” of a university, and Brock’s Library is no exception. These metaphors capture the Library’s central role in the life of the academic community. The Library is a place where students and scholars come together to learn, share and develop ideas across the boundaries of academic departments and disciplines.
Whether you are a student, faculty, staff or community member, the Library is a catalyst for exploration, discovery and knowledge creation. Here are some of the many ways that we can support you in your endeavours:
- We provide access to a wealth of scholarly content in digital and print format: books, journals, special collections, maps, GIS, data, media, and many other types of information
- We instruct students on sophisticated research strategies and partner with faculty on curriculum design
- We provide rich and diverse learning spaces designed to accommodate a variety of needs
- We advance research by partnering with faculty and graduate students in the use of information resources, innovative technologies and new methods of digital scholarship
- We play an active role in disseminating Brock research through our institutional repository and open access publication platforms
- We serve as stewards by collecting and preserving records and cultural assets for the community
We are proud to play a leadership role in the teaching, learning and research missions of Brock University.
