McMaster graduate theses are more available for research and study than ever before! A new submission process from the School of Graduate Studies and work being carried out in the Library has pushed the number of McMaster theses accessible online in the Digital Commons repository to over 5,500.
Over the next few weeks, you will see several changes made to the lobbies of Mills, Thode and Innis libraries.
All three libraries will have their entrance/exit turnstiles replaced with bi-directional corridors - no more having to figure out which is IN and which is OUT!
Additionally, the service desk on the main floor of Mills is being replaced. For a few weeks we will offer our services from a temporary service desk located a bit further into the library. The self check-out machines have also been relocated near the New Book Display area.
In an effort to increase student awareness of sustainable printing practices at the McMaster Libraries, we want your feedback.
During the week of September 26th, 2011, please take a few minutes to complete the following student printer survey. With the help of your comments and recommendations we hope to make printing and copying on campus easier on the environment and easier on you.
The Liaison program which, in recent years, operated under the name 21st Century Fluencies, aimed to deliver customized research and teaching support services to faculty on a department-by-department basis. Librarians were assigned to specific academic or administrative departments within the University and were expected to support a broad spectrum of teaching, learning and research requirements.
Thanks to a one-time gift to the University Library, we have been able to purchase the Nature archive. This package, the backfile of the journal Nature, covers the years 1869-1986, giving us stable, perpetual, online access to all years of this title. You can browse the archive or access it through our related journal databases.

Beginning on Monday, May 9, you’ll see a change in the Library catalogue.
The Library is in the process of moving to a new software platform for its collection management and circulation functions. This will bring with it changes to the catalogue that you see when looking for library resources. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect:
Students who are studying, working in groups or just hanging out with friends in the Mills Learning Commons are fortunate to be in a space that is enhanced by student art on the walls.
The Library has just installed an art piece by Amber Aasman, a Level 4 student in Combined Art and Peace Studies, the most recent winner of an art competition sponsored by the Library and organized in partnership with the School of the Arts (SOTA).
