About Us

“I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.”

– Jorge Luis Borges

The Arthur A. Wishart Library staff and resources are critical supports for delivering high quality education to Algoma University students and for ensuring student success.

The mission of the Library Team is to serve as the access hub to learning resources, especially through providing learner-centered programs in research skills and information access. It facilitates the university’s legislated mission to “cultivate cross-cultural learning between aboriginal communities and other communities, in keeping with the history of Algoma University College and its geographic site” by organizing and supporting the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre for the University and its partner, the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association.

“Nothing sickens me more than the closed door of a library.”

 – Barbara Tuchman
