R.E.S.P.E.C.T (in the Library)
Aretha Franklin sang about it...Rodney Dangerfield complained he never got any. Respect is a simple thing that our parents taught us, but sometimes is forgotten about in day to day life.
On March 4, a random selection of McMaster students and faculty will be invited to participate in the LibQual+ ™ survey, which measures satisfaction with library services, collections and facilities. McMaster is one of many libraries across Canada participating in the 2013 survey sponsored by the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL).
The goals of LibQual+ ™ are to:
Did you know that we showcase student, staff and faculty images in the Lyons New Media Centre on the fourth floor of Mills Library? When we're not showcasing materials for a specific event, they (change to we) display artwork, photos, videos and more on our large, nine-screen video wall.
Needing a break from studying? Want to relax? Visit the DE Stress zones at either the Innis Library or the Lyons New Media Centre classroom. We have puzzles, board games, magazines, books, and cookies (while quantities last).
As the program develops we will be adding more things and coming up with more ideas to help you unwind. If you have suggestions, please feel free to let us know!
McMaster's Libraries are pleased to host once again this year's Annual Toy and Food Drive, in support of the Hamilton chapter of the Salvation Army's Christmas Bureau. The Bureau collects and distributes new toys, gift cards, non-perishable food items as well as toys and food for family pets, going directly to their clients who are in need of assistance in our community. This year's Drive runs from November 26 to December 18.
McMaster announced today a gift of $700,000 from TD Bank Group to help students with disabilities better access the full services of the University libraries and to create a dynamic learning space for business students at its newest campus, the Ron Joyce Centre.
The Library's Annual Toy and Food Drive has just wrapped up and was quite a success once again this year. A sincere thank you is due to the McMaster community for the generous donations of gifts, food and pet items. Also, thank you to the staff in the Library and the many other departments who assist in the drive each year.
All the donations go to city residents who genuinely need the help, via the Hamilton branch of the Salvation Army. Once again, a big thank you goes out to everyone who made donations this year, it is very much appreciated.
McMaster's Science Fluencies Librarian, Andrew Colgoni, has been named as a member of the American Library Association (ALA) 2012 Emerging Leaders Program. Colgoni, who has been at McMaster since April 2009, is one of a small number of Canadians awarded membership in the program.
