John Bassett Memorial Library


The John Bassett Memorial Library exists to provide members of the Bishop’s community with library resources and services that support the instructional and research programs of the university. Originally built in 1959 to house the University’s library and archives collection, this library is, in may respects, at the centre of campus life at Bishop’s. Situated on the west side of the University’s famous “Quad”, the building is a hive of activity throughout the academic year as students, faculty, staff and the community take advantage of all the library has to offer.

We invite you to virtually explore our Library section for further details on the information and services available at the John Bassett Memorial Library.
