What’s Happening?




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.


Quiet Zone

Quiet Zone

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.


iPads and Laptops

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.


Coffee Machine Installed - Other Vending Machines Upgraded

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.


Graduate Reading Room

Graduate Reading Room

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.



Level Three Gallery to Open

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 O'Neill Reserves Reading Room

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 Study

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.


Graduating in May?


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.
