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.
McMaster’s library recently acquired a copy of the menu from the 1899 student Christmas dinner, a document dating back to when McMaster was just 12 years old – some 31 years before the university would move from downtown Toronto to its current location in Hamilton.

The Reference Collection has moved from the 2nd floor of Mills to the 3rd floor, along the North wall of the library.
All materials on the 3rd floor are non-circulating, including Periodicals, Microfilm and now the Reference Collection.
Please ask the staff at the Service Desk on the main floor of Mills if you require assistance with any of these collections.
Since the inception of e-books and other online resources McMaster’s library has been working to keep up.
