Math Collection housed in the Edward Rosenthall Library to move this summer

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics will be transforming the former Library space on the 11th floor of Burnside Hall over the upcoming year in order to meet the teaching and learning needs of students and faculty. To facilitate this space transformation, the McGill Library will relocate the library collection and merge this material with the rest of the math and statistic collections currently housed in other branch libraries.
