Due to unforeseen requirements of the climate control installation in the Division of Rare Books and Special Collections, construction will have to take place on the third floor of McLennan Library in addition to the previously announced closure of the fourth floor of McLennan.
As a result of renovations to the Rare Books and Special Collections Library, the 4th floor of McLennan Library Building will be closed from May 25 to August 31, 2004.
Materials in the Peter Marshall Laing Special Collections Room (Wainwright Collection, Rare Canadiana, etc.) of the Law Library are unavailable for consultation during the month of May while temperature and humidity controls are being installed. We regret the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Richard Tomlinson, the collections will be housed in stable environmental conditions. Please contact the Division by April 30, 2004, to make special arrangements for material.
