McGill University will be holding its first annual Energy Awareness Day on January 29, 2004. In accordance with McGill's environmental policy, the campaign will serve to promote environmental awareness and publicize initiatives that have already been undertaken by the University to curtail the over-consumption of energy on campus. January has been selected for the campaign as the cold weather and the resumption of the academic year have traditionally made it the month with the highest energy consumption.
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.
Upcoming seminars on June 7/8.
