The Library's Annual Toy and Food Drive has just wrapped up and we are happy to report that this year has been another success. A sincere thank you is due to the McMaster community for the generous donations of gifts, food, and pet items. Also, a big thank you to the staff in the Library and many other departments who assist in the drive each year.
All the donations go to city residents who genuinely need the help, via the downtown Hamilton branch of the Salvation Army, a tradition that dates back almost 40 years now.
It is that time of the year when students have their noses in books, eyes are red and bleary from studying and stress levels are peaking. To help relieve a bit of the stress of exams, the McMaster library is hosting a few events for the students

Since the inception of e-books and other online resources McMaster’s library has been working to keep up.
McMaster's Libraries are once again pleased to host this year's Annual Toy and Food Drive, in support of the Hamilton chapter of the Salvation Army's Christmas Bureau. This year's Drive runs from November 21 to December 16.
The end of the "5-minute e-book" is coming!
We've heard from many of you that this collection of e-books, which allows a five minute preview before requiring you to request longer access and wait for an approval message, is a source of frustration. We agree that one of the major advantages of e-books and other online resources is immediate availability whenever and wherever you need them!
Aretha Franklin sang about it ... Rodney Dangerfield complained he never got any. Respect is a simple thing that our parents taught us, but sometimes gets forgotten about in day to day life.
RESPECT: treating others the way you wish to be treated. Holding a door open for someone; listening to each others views; seeing people for who they are; not being selfish with space; following the rules. These are just a few examples of respect in our daily lives. Small things can make a big difference.
Update #3, August 8: The necessary reindexing of the Classic Catalogue has been completed successfully and all catalogue and user account functions are working as usual. Thanks for your patience while we resolved this problem!
