There are big changes happening at the Marvin Duchow Music Library!

What happened to the 3rd floor desk?!Marvin Duchow Music Library

As of fall, 2012, all McGill libraries are switching to a single service point system. What does this mean for the Music Library?

The 3rd floor service desk has been removed. In its place are two small study tables for consultation with reference staff or non-circulating reference materials. As well, students and faculty are encouraged to use the new self-service hold/supply shelf and the Auto-Loan machine for borrowing scores and books on the 3rd floor.

Regular returns should be placed in the book return slot outside the Music Library opposite the elevators. In-library-use returns can be placed in the pre-shelving area behind the staircase.

For complex reference questions,  reference staff will be happy to help you from their offices.

The audio/video and reserves desk on the 4th floor will be the primary location for staff-assisted loans (including equipment and inter-library loans from other libraries) and reference during peak times of the day.

Questions about the new service?  Please consult a full-time Music Library staff member:
