We'll be BACK on site, but NOT just yet!

Check this site regularly for updates on what onsite services we are restoring.

LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

What is a Maker Space?

A Maker Space is a flexible, community space, particularly well-suited to libraries, where groups and individuals can gather to hypothesize, explore, and experiment to further and deepen their own learning.  

A problem can be presented by a facilitator or introduced by a student for classes or individuals to work towards a solution. The application of curriculum learning and each student's acquired skills determine the quality of each outcome.

An instructional transformation from teacher to facilitator further develops the strength of the learning experience.  

Design thinking, problem solving, and collaboration are emphasized.  Formative assessment allows students to be evaluated throughout their learning experience.  Learning is personal and self-motivated.  

Many skills are acquired through hands-on learning.
