In preparation for Winter 2011 renovations, the Howard Ross
Library is now moving its regular-loan print collection (books,
bound journals, and annual reports). All other Management Library
services, collections, and facilities will remain available until
the end of term. For more information about the renovation project,
Construction at Howard Ross.
It is possible to request items from the collection during the move. Please speak to a staff member at the Howard Ross Library loans desk for assistance.
After several years of planning, the Howard Ross Library of Management will undergo a complete renovation beginning in January 2011. This overhaul of the entire second floor of the Bronfman building, co-sponsored by the McGill University Library and the Desautels Faculty of Management, will provide McGill students, faculty, staff, and community members with a completely renovated library combined with vibrant teaching and learning spaces and a 60-seat Trading Centre.
The new Business Intelligence Centre will double the Library’s seating capacity, increase the number of wired study spaces, and provide 8 dedicated group study rooms. The Desautels Faculty will construct a live data trading centre, a conference room, and a Trading Research Lab, which will accommodate the needs of its new undergraduate and graduate programs in investment management. The project is being designed by the Montreal architectural firm Saia Barbarese Topouzanov.
To ensure ongoing library services to the Howard Ross Library clients, a temporary service point will be set up on the 4th floor of the Bronfman building. This space, due to open in January 2011, will house the information and reserve loans services; the Howard Ross recently received journals, newspapers, and reference collections; as well as the popular Bloomberg and Datastream stations. The Howard Ross print collections will move temporarily to the 4th floor of the Humanities and Social Sciences Library (McLennan building).
