The new Quiet Study area on the 2nd floor of Thode opens today.
Students now have access to approximately 390 individual study carrels, in a variety of configurations. More than half of these study spaces will have power for charging laptops and other electronic devices.
The electrical work is not quite complete, but we wanted to make the space available to students as soon as possible, so please be patient with us while the final work is being completed.
Enjoy this new study area!
The Library's Annual Toy and Food Drive has just wrapped up and was quite a success once again this year. A sincere thank you is due to the McMaster community for the generous donations of gifts, food and pet items. Also, thank you to the staff in the Library and the many other departments who assist in the drive each year.
All the donations go to city residents who genuinely need the help, via the Hamilton branch of the Salvation Army. Once again, a big thank you goes out to everyone who made donations this year, it is very much appreciated.
McMaster's Science Fluencies Librarian, Andrew Colgoni, has been named as a member of the American Library Association (ALA) 2012 Emerging Leaders Program. Colgoni, who has been at McMaster since April 2009, is one of a small number of Canadians awarded membership in the program.

We know that there are never enough hours to get those last minute facts and figures into your head. To help with this, the Mills Learning Commons and all of Thode Library will be open 24/7 from December 2 to December 20, 2011.
All three libraries (Mills, Innis and Thode) will run their normal extended hours for the three weeks during the exam time period, which includes opening @ 8am Saturday's and Sunday's and staying open until 11pm on Friday and Saturday's.
McMaster's Libraries are pleased to once again host this year's Annual Toy and Food drive, in support of the Hamilton chapter of the Salvation Army's Christmas Bureau. The bureau collects and distributes new toys, non-perishable food items as well as goods for family pets, for their clients in need of assistance in our community. The generous donations from McMaster students, staff and faculty are of great assistance to those less fortunate, particularly at this time of year.
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.
The Reactor Cafe @ Thode Library will close at noon on Friday November 25th so that a small renovation can take place.
Hospitality Services has recently partnered with Seattle's Best Coffee. The Cafe will re-open Monday November 28th, showcasing the new coffee brew and a larger selection of menu offerings.
Thanks for your patience while we make this transition.
The Multi-Faith Prayer Room at Thode has been relocated to larger, more private quarters.
You'll now find the prayer room beside room B113 in the basement of Thode Library (Quiet Study area) near the group study rooms.
Please ask at the first floor desk if you have any questions.
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.
