Welcome to the Library Collaboratory

Visit the Library Collaboratory’s Virtual Drop-In Hours, Monday through Friday, to meet with Collaboratory Staff. Need help with your research or getting a project off the ground? Need some help with writing for scholarships and grant writing? Would you like to know more about how technology fits into your research? Thinking about developing a prototype as part of your research? We’re here to support you.
The Ryerson University Library Collaboratory is a space and interdisciplinary research hub on the 3rd floor of the Library, accessible via the SLC third floor crossover. The Library Collaboratory provides faculty, their research teams and graduate students with space and technology resources to facilitate research and course development. We accept registrations from faculty members, graduate students, and research teams (working under a faculty member), to use this community workspace. Contact us with inquiries at collab@ryerson.ca. Accessing the Collaboratory: Unless an event is marked Private, members are welcome to access the space for quiet work at these times. Unless noted below, all other dates and time are open to members for regular use of Collaboratory space.

For Faculty

Individual faculty are free to explore the Collaboratory in whatever area they are interested in, whether to learn about new equipment or peruse their own research. Our goal is to lower the barrier for access to equipment for faculty. Fill out this form to verify faculty/instructor status and for requesting door access.

For Research Teams

Researchers who have a project team or would like dedicated space work can apply with a research project. Faculty whose research assistants need space to work or access to technology are welcome to register using this form, and will be contacted with progress.

 

How we can help

Through the Collaboratory, the library provides access to workspace and technology resources for Ryerson faculty, sessional instructors, staff, and graduate students.
