Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Library customer satisfaction survey results

The Campus Libraries recently asked faculty, staff and students to fill out a LibQUAL+ customer satisfaction survey for a chance to win some great prizes.

Congratulations to Faculty of Education student Sarah Nicholls, winner of an Apple Watch, and to the 10 Tim Hortons gift card winners!

Thank you to the nearly 880 people who responded. The survey results will help the Library collect and interpret feedback systematically over time. It also provides comparable assessment information from peer institutions across North America.

A preliminary review of the results indicates that:

  • Library users appreciate the helpfulness of library staff and the wealth of digital resources provided.
  • They are much less satisfied with the lack of space at the north Oshawa location.
  • Respondents would like more noise restrictions and increased hours of service.

The information received from the survey will be used to inform the budget and facilities requests as the Library makes plans for the next 10 years.
