The University Library and Health Sciences Library have now launched the new Library Catalogue.
On the University Library and Health Sciences Library websites, you will find Quick Search, which integrates journal articles with books and other library collections, as well as options to search only the catalogue and a refreshed 'classic' catalogue. We’ve created an FAQ document with tips and information about the new search interfaces that may be helpful in getting started.
Library staff and students gathered recently to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Lyons New Media Centre.
Rhonda Moore's job at the Library wasn't always so digital. In fact, her first position at the University was as a barcoder, placing barcodes on books after they were manually catalogued. Moore now manages the Lyons New Media Centre - one of McMaster's most digital spaces - and was among the 122 university employees inducted into the Quarter Century Club Wednesday night.
The Lyons New Media Centre recently rolled out the red carpet for the third annual McMaster 24 Hour Film Festival gala event.
With popcorn in hand, McMaster students, alumni, staff and faculty gathered at the Art Gallery of Hamilton to screen the top ten festival entries and to announce the winning films, selected by a jury of industry specialists.
"What is that thing" "Is that a 3D printer" "Cool!" "Awesome" "Can we use it?"
These are various comments that have been heard in the Lyons New Media Centre as the new 3D printer was put in place and tested.
Yes!, the library now has a 3D printer for McMaster students, staff and faculty to use! Thanks to the MSU Student Life Enhancement Fund (SLEF), the Lyons New Media Centre was able to purchase an Ultimaker 3D printer. It will be a free service for any McMaster student or employee.
