Library and Archives of the Future

Queen’s has embarked on a major redevelopment: imagining the Queen’s Library and Archives of the future.

The LAMP Steering Group is collaborating with a core team of internationally respected  expert consultants in a rigorous and imaginative planning exercise to develop Queen’s Library and Archives Master Plan.  CS&P Architects are specialists in education, Reich + Petch Architects are collection specialists and Aaron Cohen Associates, library specialists. This core team will be supported by a group of subconsultants in key disciplines including costing, engineering, heritage, audiovisual and information technology. The LAMP Steering Group is working with the lead planning partner CS&P Architects to develop a clear understanding of space needs and opportunities in both the Library and the Archives. The Master Plan Report will guide future planning and identify priorities for future investments.

Queen’s Library and the Archives invite all stakeholders of the Queen’s community to attend the upcoming project overview presentation on Thursday, November 29th, 9:00 – 9:45 am, Robert Sutherland Hall Rm. 202. This presentation will kick off two days of intensive consultation with all Queen’s stakeholders. CS&P, will facilitate discussion sessions with staff groups relating to each library, the Archives, collections, information technology and academic services (reference/information, teaching, research services).  Other group sessions include QLC partners, faculty, undergraduates, graduate students and university operations (campus planning, security, etc).

Queen’s encourages you to engage in the re-visioning of Queen’s Library & Archives campus network. Imagine your Queen’s Library & Archives of the future and help us build it.
