Located on ACAD's lower level, the Luke Lindoe Library is a central hub of knowledge and information, providing a range of services, resources, and support to students.

The library houses an ever-growing collection of publications and image banks related to art, design, and emerging media, provides writing assistance and mentoring, and maintains our learning managment system, the ACAD Moodle.


ACAD's library was named after acclaimed artist Luke Lindoe (1913–2000) in 1988. A painter, sculptor, ceramics artist, and businessman, Lindoe played a central role in defining the diversity of art practice at ACAD today.

Lindoe studied at ACAD (then called the Provincial Institute of Technology and Art) in 1935 before becoming an instructor at the college in 1946. He is also credited as the founder of ACAD's Ceramics Department.
