(Nov 29/10) Although the Health Science library is one of the better ones on campus it is in completely biased toward other faculty students. Other faculties are not able to book a study room in advance yet Health Science students can still book a study room in other libraries, this is completely unfair. It should be either all faculties should be able to book a study room in advance, or it should be entirely on a first come first serve bases.

Library response:

The renovations to the Health Sciences Library were largely funded by the Faculty of Health Sciences to meet the special needs of their students.  The Health Sciences Library reports directly to the Faculty of Health Sciences; the other libraries report separately, so I cannot speak to their advance booking policy.

A survey we ran last week showed that over 2/3 of the students in the Health Sciences Library come from other Faculties, so it is indeed a popular place.  Our computers, laptops and all open study spaces are available and heavily used by all students.  The study rooms are also available to all McMaster students, with the exception that they can only be booked by FHS students from one week to one day in advance; they can be booked by any student for the current day.
