Message of Pride from the Dean of Libraries

At the McGill Library and Archives, we embrace Pride, the LGBTQ community and diversity in general as a core value. It is my sincerest hope that each of our users, be they students, faculty, staff or the general public, feel a sense of acceptance and openness at each branch and embark upon their research and studies with these values in mind. We are a community of many flavors and backgrounds and that diversity is one of the things that I like best about McGill, Montreal and Canada. Let’s celebrate it!
