I'm sick of doing the SEO of the topic and leave these for the ones who are interested in it --222.64.214.173 (talk) 05:02, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

New section on Academic Libraries in Canada[edit]

I am planning to add a section under the history heading for academic libraries in Canada. This will provide a small extension in terms of providing a world view, which the article lacks. I will discuss how libraries have developed over the past century, how the role of academic libraries in Canada has evolved and challenges that Canadian academic libraries have faced. I will also incorporate some information on specific organizations that serve these institutions. --Frombritain (talk) 16:09, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

New reference for further reading[edit]

I added a new reference in the further reading section to a paper I found on an internet blog. This paper was conducted at the University of British Columbia and examines social media in University/research libraries.--Frombritain (talk) 02:23, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

List of Academic Libraries[edit]

Does anyone think making one of these would be a good idea? If so I can do it. Semccraw (talk) 16:11, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Do you have any idea about how many libraries that would be? A few thousand? There might be lists that could be linked to, which probably is a better idea. --LPfi (talk) 08:01, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

There doesn't seem to be a list of academic libraries that we could link to on Wikipedia. I'm not even sure how useful it would be. However, a list of the largest academic libraries (over a predetermined amount of volumes) might be useful.I would be happy to work on it. Mcgowanlianna (talk) 18:47, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
