Canada: University of Calgary digital library ready for students

From the Calgary Herald Article:

Staff at the University of Calgary are rushing to ensure the new Taylor Family Digital Library will be open by the start of the school year.

Tom Hickerson, university librarian and vice provost, said he’s thrilled the refitting of the mechanical system is nearly complete and the new facility is close to being ready to open.
