Alternative Sexton Library space

 

CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO THE INSTALLATION OF NEW A/V EQUIPMENT IN ROOM B308. THE SPACE IS EXPECTED TO REOPEN AT THE END OF APRIL. 

If you are seeking study space, please select one of the other library spaces listed. 

On the Sexton Campus, bookable study space is available in the Design Commons.

Why do we have an alternative Sexton Library space?

On the recommendation of Dalhousie’s Health & Safety Office related to concerns about insufficient ventilation, the Sexton Library will not be opening for student and faculty use this fall. Instead, the Dalhousie Libraries will be offering alternative study space on the Sexton campus in the classroom across the hall from the Sexton Library. The space will offer 10 socially distanced study tables for three-hour bookable time slots. In addition, a printer workstation will be available for 30-minute bookable time slots.
