"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.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, McMaster music student Jason Scozzari revived a moving piece of Canadian wartime music.

The composition, "Days of Peace," was written by Herbert Kohler in 1915.

The original sheet music is housed in McMaster's extensive "War Songs from the First Half of 20th Century" collection, located in the Archives & Research Collection at Mills Memorial Library. Scozzari, who is entering his fourth year at McMaster this fall, performed the piece in Convocation Hall.
