McGill24, the University’s annual day of giving, is back Wednesday, March 9, 2022. This year, as we celebrate 200 years of McGill, we’re also looking at our why.
Everyone has a unique reason for giving back and wanting to make a meaningful impact. For the McGill Library, that reason always comes back to students: student success, student collaboration, student experience, student experimentation, student achievement, student community, student leadership, student support, and beyond. It’s all about the students, past, present, and future.
The Library is re-imagining services and spaces for the 21st century in a project called The Fiat Lux Library Project. Students are at the centre of this vision and have been instrumental in its conception and planning. The project will include cutting-edge adaptable technology, including a Digital Innovation & Scholarship Hub offering highly specialized software and collaborative workstations that foster exploration.
The reimagined space will be more comfortable, more accessible, more sustainable, and will make our incredible, unique materials visible to a greater number of students, researchers, and community members.
Over the last two years, the Fiat Lux Project Office was established and a trio of local and international architectural design teams are now busy at work on making our dreams a reality thanks to the incredible support of countless donors the world over.
On March 9th, show your reason for supporting the next generation.
