A team of researchers in the Netherlands has developed the means to store data at the atomic level. This technique would allow 502 terabytes of data to fit into one square inch. According to the authors, "[t]ranslating the two-dimensional storage density presented here to three dimensions, would ... allow the storage of the entire US Library of Congress in a cube 100 µm wide." At the moment, the memory array can operate up to a temperature of 77 K (about -210 C), meaning that the technology would be restricted to data centres capable of maintaining such temperatures.

At the McGill Library and Archives, we embrace Pride, the LGBTQ community and diversity in general as a core value. It is my sincerest hope that each of our users, be they students, faculty, staff or the general public, feel a sense of acceptance and openness at each branch and embark upon their research and studies with these values in mind.
