Promotional Materials & Outreach in the Library

Posters, signage, and tabling are not typically permitted in the library.

One of the challenges that VIU Library frequently navigates is the success of library space and its popularity. Library space is a frequent target for those that wish to promote, table, host events, etc. However, this space is first and foremost a place for students to complete their assignments. Therefore, it is important to us to prevent the erosion of student space (even if temporary) and limit distractions. We believe the nearby cafeteria and quad serve this function.

In the past, we have made exceptions for initiatives that align with our Library Strategic Plan. If you believe that you qualify for an exception, please contact Luke McLeod.

Displaying Art in the Library

VIU Library invites students to display artwork and exhibits on the 3rd and 5th floors. Past displays have included ARTS 484, Typography, and more. To arrange a display, please contact Luke McLeod

Filming and Photography in the Library

Permission to film or photograph in library spaces must be requested and approved in advance. Please contact our Learning Commons Librarian, Luke McLeod, at least one week prior to the requested date. 

Please include the following details:

  • Proposed time, date, and duration
  • Desired location of the library
