Scott Library

Scott Library is centrally located on the Keele campus. It is six stories high and is connected to the Ross Social Sciences and Humanities Building by the Central Square and an elevated rooftop terrace. Also known as 'Central Library' it was named after William Pearson Scott, the first Chair of the York University Board of Governors.

Completed by UPACE in 1970 and officially opened in 1971, the library is constructed of precast concrete with glass and metal details. The Scott Library - interior includes a central atrium bordered by terraces, greenery, and exposed winding concrete staircases. The library contains the university's largest collection of books, periodicals, maps, film, and other media. Study rooms, classrooms, and open spaces offer students many places to make the most of the library's collections and resources.
