The Ryerson Library Collaboratory is a new space and initiative in the 3rd floor of the Library. The Collaboratory is designed to provide faculty and their student research teams with space and technology resources to facilitate project development.


We are currently running a pilot Discovery project program in the Collaboratory. This will be taking place starting January 2018 and applications to join the Collaboratory are currently open. We are accepting applications from both individual faculty and team projects looking to use our space. The first-round of projects to be accepted is due December 11th. There will be other rounds of projects in the new year. 

Currently, the Collaboratory is running a pilot project to test its programming with selected trial project teams.  For more information, contact collab@ryerson.ca

Through the Collaboratory, the library provides equitable access to workspace and technology resources for faculty who don’t normally have access through their department.

The programming will include access to digital academic resources, as well as tutorials, workshops and consultations for those programs. Some of these resources will include open publishing platforms, research data management, access to cloud based storage, digitally enhanced course development, and access to fabrication equipment, such as 3D printers, a CNC machine, laser cutter and high end computers.
