The Research and Collections Resource Facility (RCRF), is being constructed on South Campus, as the first purpose-built long-term storage facility for the university’s valuable book, map and archive collection. The building will replace the existing Book and Records Depository (BARD), located in a leased space on 50th Street in Edmonton.
The new building will not only support the receipt, processing and storage of valuable resources, but it is intended to be a central point of research using those research materials in storage. It will include a dedicated reading room for prearranged study that is critical for academic success, augmented by secure, purpose designed library and archives staff services, sorting and processing areas.
