See you in September!

OCAD U Library Services, the Learning Zone

The Learning Zone summer hours will come to a close on August 15th. We are looking forward to 2014 fall semester, welcoming new and returning students to our space.

Learning Zone is an collaborative engaging space open to students and faculty. It includes several collections — Art & Design Annuals, Visionnaire periodical collection, OCAD Zine Library and our newest addition, the OCAD Seed Library.

Our space supports many of the student groups in hosting  XPACE: External Space, a membership based artist-run centre supported by OCAD Student Union, Plate Station, reusable dishware exchange program and sustainable gardening initiatives by grOCAD.

Many on-going events take place throughout the school year including Money Mondays – financial planning available to students and grads presented by CREATiveFund$, OCAD U’s Financial Skills Program, student exhibitions and much more.

See you in September, stay tuned for the LZ fall hours!
