McLennan stacks

Over the course of the Winter 2018 and Summer 2018 semesters the Education Collection, currently housed on the second floor the Humanties and Social Sciences Library, will be integrated into the main Humanities and Social Sciences Collection in the McLennan Library Building. This project will increase the visibility and browsability of the Education Collection and will create space for over 100 new study seats.

Please note that during this time period, users will have limited access to certain materials and see increased traffic in the McLennan stacks. Noise will occur in affected areas.
