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.
Did you know you can send a print job from your dorm room or home and have it waiting for you when you come into the library the next day?
Take advantage of the double-sided printing options, colour printing and more! You never need to worry about running out of costly toner on your personal printer just as you are about to hand in your assignment again.
All you have to do is download the PrintSmart client to your personal computer once.

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.
The Map Library will close at 5pm on Wednesday August 31st, re-opening in its new location at the east end of the 1st floor of Mills Library, at 9am on Wednesday September 21st.
