Scott Library Master Space Plan

York University Libraries are embarking on a master space plan for Scott Library called “A Vision and Functional Space Program” that will be used to help us embark on a major fundraising campaign to renovate Scott Library.

Moriyama and Teshima Architects have been awarded the project. They will be delivering a space plan by Spring 2020 to map to a new vision for a 21st century research library, a contemporary library that our students, faculty and researches expect to see in modernized libraries.

To help us with the vision, our architects are embarking on a stakeholder engagement process. We want to get your thoughts on the vision that we have identified as priorities and learn from you if we are on target and if there is something else we might want to consider.

The space planning team is in the process of reaching out to different stakeholder groups across campus to schedule stakeholder meetings. The team is also making available an open house for broader input. We hope to see you at one of our consultations and to hear from your via our online survey!

Online Survey

An online survey is available to gather additional feedback. It is an electronic version of our Scott Library Master Plan Open House consultation questions. We invite you to share your thoughts here: bit.ly/ScottSpacePlan

The survey closes March 16th to provide ample opportunity for the architects to be inspired by your input.
