Back by popular demand, the McMaster University Library 2022-23 Impact Report is now available.
This second edition of the magazine offers readers an inside look at the library’s strategic work from the past year, as told through engaging stories and beautiful images.
“When people think about libraries, they naturally think about books,” said Vivian Lewis, McMaster University Librarian. “In addition to our wonderful collection of books and electronic resources, the university library is an integral partner in the teaching, learning, and research that drives McMaster.”
Among the many featured stories in this year’s report are:
- A behind-the-scenes look at the Hidden Collections project in the William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collections.
- A deep dive into the archive of Indigenous author Basil H. Johnston and its status as a new addition to the United Nations Canada Memory of the World Register.
- An introduction to new library leaders and colleagues.
- A feature on librarian and donor Anne Pottier, who is a long-time accessibility advocate on campus.
- An overview of how McMaster libraries are making publication in open access journals easier for McMaster researchers.
- A primer on rare books and archives recently added to the library’s collections.
