The Puzzle Station on the Redpath Bridge recently found a new home! The ever-popular puzzle has been moved just down the hall on the Redpath main floor. You will now find the table location around the corner from the stairs, close to our group study rooms, piano station, and the exercise bike. This new location will allow for both individual puzzle use and collaborative use.
We would like to remind library users, that during this time of the year infections and bacteria can spread quite quickly. Remember to wash your hands frequently or use anti-bacterial hand sanitizer with a high alcohol content.
Thank you to the AUS for funding the Puzzle Station!
In addition to moving the Puzzle Station, we are now providing an additional table for McGill student groups and departments to promote their activities. Groups looking to book the table must fill out the request form online and consult our updated policies. Requests will be processed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
You can also check the tabling calendar in advance to see what times are available.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nestled in the passageway between McLennan and Redpath, a new arrival is finally bringing cartographers to the table (literally). That’s right, a new puzzle is here! What’s special about this puzzle is that it’s no store-bought piece. This one is custom-made, using a scan taken from the McGill map collection. The puzzle is located at the typical spot, the De-Stress Station, along with the original map it’s based on being shown-off right next to it.
This particular puzzle features a soil map of Australia, completed in 1960 by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Division of Soils. This is the first of what is hoped to be many puzzles made from content in the McGill map collection. If you’re interested, come and take a peek! If the student record is anything to go by, it won’t be long until this puzzle is complete.
While the map collection may not be the most well-known part of the McLennan Library, we still like it. After all, we’d be lost without it.
Filling a need, once again, thanks to funding from the PGSS Library Improvement Fund, the Humanities and Social Sciences Library has just received two new “Quiet Pods”.
Students in search of a silent room to hold a private telephone call, web conference or job interview have two new spaces to try in HSSL.
The pods are soundproof. They have power in their shelf, and a light and fan for circulation that turns on as soon as the pod is occupied.
The pods were designed and built by Framery, an award-winning office design firm in Finland. The Framery O pod is constructed with sustainably sourced materials. The pods are echo-free and provide a comfortable working environment for one, that includes access to McGill’s wireless network.
Located on the main floor (M1) of the McLennan Library building, adjacent the Recently received – newspapers and journals shelves, the pods are currently available without a booking. Be sure to send us your feedback, once you have tried one.
