Emily Carr University Library

The Library and Archives enables research, learning, and innovation by providing unique collections, a welcoming dynamic space, responsive services and professional knowledgeable staff.
  • The artist collective Instant Coffee, as part of a two week residency at Emily Carr University’s Library, will publish Issue #6 of GOOD NEWS.

    GOOD NEWS is a small handmade journal produced on the occasion of an event and typically based on one question as a responsive forum. The journal is often assembled in public and produced under tight time constraints, leaving the collective to scramble for content, material and fabrication. For this issue Instant Coffee will develop its theme on the Emily Carr University Campus and use the studio facilities to produce it.

  • The Library is having another Instagram Photo Contest, Tuesday, September 1 - Friday, September 18. Post a picture of the library and help decide the winners! Fabulous prizes to be won.
