The FIMS Graduate Library, located in FNB 3020, is supported by the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS) at Western University. We welcome all students, faculty, and staff involved in graduate education at FIMS.

The FIMS Graduate Library provides access to electronic databases exclusively for the FIMS community. We house non-circulating print collections, including books, comics and graphic novels, periodicals, course reserves, board games, and DVDs. Equipment such as digital cameras, e-readers, and tablets are available for student use too.

The FIMS Graduate Library has a makerspace, Bibliotech, with high and low tech maker resources for student experimentation, as well as meeting rooms for group projects and student meetings, and a reading room with comfortable seating.

The workshop and seminar series called FIMS Graduate Library Presents. . .  aims to provide additional knowledge and experiences to formal grad programming.

Please review our Etiquette Policy prior to using the FIMS Graduate Library.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lūnaapéewak (Len-ahpay-wuk) and Attawandaron (Add-a-won-da-run) peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum.

With this, we respect the longstanding relationships that Indigenous Nations have to this land, as they are the original caretakers. We acknowledge historical and ongoing injustices that Indigenous Peoples (e.g. First Nations, Métis and Inuit) endure in Canada, and we accept responsibility as a public institution to contribute toward revealing and correcting miseducation as well as renewing respectful relationships with Indigenous communities through our teaching, research and community service.
