Celebrating the Calgary Public Library


Libraries in the news!  We are always happy to see libraries, both public and academic,  making waves in the world.  The Calgary Public Library (Central Library) has made the Time “Greatest Places 2019” List for the beautiful architecture and wonderful collections and educational centres.  Way to go, folks!

Views From The Library – The Sea Of Sheet Music


Liszt, Tchaikovsky and Bach, oh my!  Did you know that Archer Library has a LOT of sheet music?  We adore our music students and Faculty, BUT you don’t have to be registered in a music class to borrow music from the library!  Like most items in our collection,  you just need to be a registered student, staff member, faculty member or public access user to borrow an item.  There is a huge range of pieces available from piano music and string quartets,  to larger orchestral scores for in-library viewing.  We also have an amazing recorded music collection to boot!  If your jam is Gershwin or Gounod,  we’ve got you covered!

Check out our music LibGuide to help you navigate our collection!  https://uregina.libguides.com/music

Toni Morrison

The world lost one of its literacy greats this week with the passing of author Toni Morrison. Several online obituaries have appeared that celebrate her remarkable life and literacy work. The best way to know Morrison, though, is to read her books. If you have never read Morrison, or want to revisit some of your favourites, most are available at the University of Regina Library.
