Concordia unveils cutting-edge renovations to library

March 27, 2018

Concordia University has unveiled its new and improved Webster Library, CBC reports. The three-year, $40M renovation reportedly includes “green” walls to improve air quality, an interactive arts studio, zero-noise rooms and a “technology sandbox” that offers 3-D printing and virtual reality equipment. In a news release, Concordia Vice-Provost of Digital Strategy Guylaine Beaudry states that she ensured that students had a say in the library’s development. “Consultations were the backbone of this project’s success. And, that is what gave us the confidence to boldly move ahead in new directions in reimagining a next-generation library,” said Beaudry. CBC | Concordia
