In support of Open Education Week, Library staff have created a display - located in the lobby of Mills Library - that features a 'Mini Open Textbook Library,' made up of a number of open textbooks recently acquired by the Library, courtesy of eCampusOntario.

The University Library and Health Sciences Library have now launched the new Library Catalogue.
On the University Library and Health Sciences Library websites, you will find Quick Search, which integrates journal articles with books and other library collections, as well as options to search only the catalogue and a refreshed 'classic' catalogue. We’ve created an FAQ document with tips and information about the new search interfaces that may be helpful in getting started.
A new open access, online journal, hosted by McMaster University Library Press, is focusing on how students are working in partnership with faculty and academic staff to enhance teaching and learning in higher education.<

Every year, the McMaster libraries add tens of thousands of new books, e-books, journals, and online resources to the collection, spanning the wide range of subject areas that the libraries support.
It can be challenging for faculty and students to keep up as new items flow into the library each day, but there’s a tool built into the Library Catalogue to help everyone do just that.

With the start of a new term upon us, the McMaster University Library is encouraging new and returning students to adopt stronger digital security practices.
Your MAC ID is your personal digital key to unlocking access to expensive databases and journals and other licensed content offered through the University Library.
Treat your MAC ID as you would treat your online banking:
In our ongoing efforts to strengthen security and improve access to our extensive library of licensed content, the University Library, in collaboration with the Health Sciences Library, is disabling the single barcode access, commonly used by Medportal users to access library e-resources, and replacing it with a MAC ID login.
The Library has new collections of online films, research handbooks, archival sources, and many e-books. Check out our top picks!

As outlined in an earlier news piece, effective today we have instituted more stringent MAC ID checks for offsite access to library resources. If you have been impacted by this change and feel that you should have access, please contact:
