Transform Spaces

Transforming Scott Library

The Scott Library is planning a complex renovation of Scott Library intended to not only refresh an aging building, but also to recast the services and resources provided by the Libraries in new and innovative ways. The vision for Scott Library has the following broad objectives:

  • Significantly increase the seating capacity
  • Inspire and support learning and student success
  • Foster inter-disciplinary research and discovery in a digital world
  • Embolden creativity and innovation
  • Engage the communities YUL aims to serve
  • Create memorable and comfortable physical environments for all users
  • Achieve a physical configuration more aligned with YUL’s internal organization and capabilities

Gifts to the Library and Naming Spaces

York Libraries rely on philanthropic support to optimally serve our students, ensuring they have access to social, learning and development opportunities – in and outside the classroom. We invite you to partner with the Libraries in our endeavour to offer the best possible post-secondary education and educational experience.

Your gift to the Libraries will have a long-lasting impact on the students – during their time at York and long after they graduate.
