QPIRG Concordia’s Resource Library Mandate:

The QPIRG Concordia Resource Centre is a free library that is committed to fulfilling the QPIRG Concordia mandate, which aims to promote social and environmental justice. Our mission is to be an accessible information provider and community resource. We strive to provide alternative books, magazines, films and audio materials that cannot be easily found in regular libraries and to hold materials that are representative of the issues, concerns and interests of marginalized communities. Currently, our commitment to accessibility is visible in our free and open membership policy, our easy to use system and our online database. We are continually working to improve the physical accessibility of the space.
