The O'Neill Library made an additional 50 lockers available for student use. They are available on a first come, first serve basis and can be reserved for the academic year or the summer session. Stop by the circulation desk for more information.
If you are an O'Neill regular you know by now that the entire 5th floor and half of the 4th floor have been devoted to quiet, quiet study. Students have agreed to monitor the space themselves.
O'Neill has a combination of 20 iPads and laptops to loan. They are very popular and before coming over it's best to check the availability of each by going to the Libraries home page and clicking on Technology Loans. You can also check on what other technology items are available such as calculators or Mac and laptop chargers.
A new vending machine was recently added, in O'Neill, to the two already on level 1 in the booth area. A coffee machine was added to the snack and beverage machines already there.
New furniture was added to the Graduate Reading Room, located on the 4th floor. No seats were lost for undergraduates - the tables, chairs and carrels that were in that room were moved to other places in the library.
A new gallery featuring art work of current faculty and alumni is being created on the third (main) floor of O'Neill. Look for an exhibit to be in place in late April.
Renovations to the reading room in O'Neill will begin after May graduation. If you return in September the room will be transformed into a reading room with more functionality - new furniture, new lighting and possibly a fireplace. The reserves desk will be gone, but don't worry, you will be able to request reserve reading materials from the main circulation desk.
24/7 hours exam hours for O'Neill begin the night of Monday, May 2 with the last night open all night being, Monday, May 16.
If you are graduating in May but staying in the area, you can continue to use the BC Libraries and continue to borrow materials. Check out what's available to you on the Alumni Library Services web page.
