Located on the second floor of the Waterloo Architecture building in Cambridge, this branch of the University of Waterloo Library supports the teaching and research of students and faculty at Waterloo Architecture. Musagetes houses books and journals on a wide variety of subjects relating to architecture and design, as well as history, art and literature. The collection also includes rare books, reference resources, Master's theses, films, research and article databases and geospatial data. 

The Library takes its name from the Musagetes Foundation, which provided funding for the renovation and furnishing of the space. The name “Musagetes” (pronounced “Mews-a-get-ees”) was the Greek god Apollo’s title as protector and supporter of the Muses.
