Robarts Revitalization

On February 28th, the Ontario Government announced a $15 million investment to revitalize the University of Toronto's Robarts library. With the current merger of the Data, Map, and Government Information Services (DMGIS), and Research and Reference Services, staff hope some of the funds will be available for developing a bigger and better GIS facility on the library's fifth floor.
