Welcome to the Library
My first experience at a university library was a few decades ago, but I clearly remember a feeling of confusion and doubt. Do I belong here? How does everyone else look like they know what they’re doing? A classmate led me up the staircase to find a book to review for intro to politics. Later I learned how to find articles in journals (back when we had printed indexes, but that’s another story) and I passed on that knowledge to my friends. Then the lightbulb went off! I could be a librarian and help students on their journeys? Graduate school and then many stops along the way, and I am very proud and humbled to be the Dean of the Library at MacEwan University.
I want to welcome you to the Library and assure you that you do belong, and the staff and librarians are here to help you on your journey of learning.
Please let me know if have any suggestions or comments about our services.
