A catalyst for intellectual activity, on campus and beyond

McMaster University Library has long played a pivotal role in supporting the university’s complex research ecosystem and, through the provision of innovative physical and virtual environments, services and learning opportunities, has been an active partner in teaching and learning.

Our 2020-2023 strategic plan places renewed focus on these and other key areas. We will continue to elevate our internationally renowned research collections. We will leverage our investments in state-of-the-art digital classroom technologies to meet the evolving needs of faculty and students. We will nurture strong relationships with our campus partners, local libraries, and social and cultural organizations to help advance Hamilton’s future as a thriving place to live and work.

We have charted an ambitious course. Working with Library staff and the campus community, I look forward to realizing our vision together.
