Waitz is now available in the Schulich Library of Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Engineering.

During the busiest times of the year we regularly hear from students regarding how challenging it can be to find a place to study in library spaces. In order to help address this concern, McGill Library is working with Waitz to display space use information online that shows how busy the McLennan-Redpath Complex and Schulich Library are in real-time, by floor, so that students can save time.
