This September, McMaster Libraries will be introducing Apple computers into our public areas in both Thode and Mills Libraries. Come September, you'll find a sea of brand new machines, including iMacs, Mac Pros and Apple laptops. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the Apple operating system. All of these stations will be dual boot, which means you'll be able to start them up and run either the Apple or Windows operating system.

Imagine owning a copy of Galileo’s 1632 book, Dialogo di Galileo Galilei (Galileo’s Dialogue), challenging the traditional thinking that the universe revolves around the earth. At the time, the book and its concepts were so controversial, that Galileo was convicted of heresy in 1633 and the book was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books.

Or perhaps a first-edition, autographed copy of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine is a more suitable choice for your own personal library?
