Over half of our librarians are alumni of Western’s MLIS program. Additionally, our library has hosted numerous FIMS co-op placements over the last decade.

The past, after all, informs the present and helps chart the future.

As the Director of Western’s undergraduate and graduate programs in Public History, Internship Coordinator of the MA Program in Public History, course professor in the Department of History, and Western alumnus, I have over twenty years of experience working with our university’s top-notch Archivists in various capacities. They as a group are among the most essential resources at Western, for their invaluable support to students, faculty, staff and programs, as well as for their delivering critical institutional services and for strengthening the university’s relations with outside communities. 

Librarians and Archivists are always there for you.

When I was conducting research for my Master of Arts Degree my professor encouraged me to reach out to Tom Belton, an archivist at Western University. Tom went out of his way to find relevant documents and was there for me for months while I worked at the library and archives.

Every great university has a library at its centre

Every great university has a library at its centre; and, as I have tried to argue here, the library is above all an institution sustained by the knowledge and skills of the professionals who staff it. Western faculty like me are enormously privileged to carry on our research at Weldon and at the university’s other libraries; as our librarian colleagues enter what may be a difficult set of contract negotiations, we owe them our unconditional support.
