Ron Burnett Library + Learning Commons

The Emily Carr community converges and collaborates in the Learning Commons.


The Learning Commons serves as the collaborative heart of the campus, enabling research, creativity, and innovation in a dynamic learning environment. The Library, Writing Centre, and Teaching and Learning Centre inspire curiosity and exploration in students, faculty, and staff and transform learning, research, and practice.

The Learning Commons promotes and supports a culture of research and critical inquiry for the Emily Carr University community -- through research, writing and pedagogy. The expansive space is inviting, dynamic and accessible and facilitates exploration and learning through engagement with technology, physical materials and conversation, both in-person and through virtual environments.

The Ron Burnett Library + Learning Commons is open to all Emily Carr students and faculty for research purposes, plus the public through the Community Borrowers program.
