Fall office hours

Posted by Megan on September 8, 2010

Beginning September 8, my office hours will be every Wednesday from 13:30-15:30 in Leacock 324B (please note the time change from last year).

All Political Science students and faculty are welcome to stop by. Get help with:

  • EndNote and other information management tools
  • Library services (like interlibrary loan, ordering books)
  • Starting a research project or literature review
  • E-journals and e-books

If you’re a TA or lecturer, please remind your undergraduate students that they can contact me as well!
Feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone to set up consultations outside my office hours. I look forward to learning more about your research.

New location for Humanities & Social Sciences Library’s microforms reading room

Posted by Megan on November 24, 2009

The microforms reading room in the Humanities and Social Sciences Library will move to its new location, Room M2-37F, on the morning of Thursday, November 26. This new location is adjacent to the Government Information Service desk, making it easier for clients to seek assistance. Please note that the microform equipment will be unavailable during the move (8:00-13:00). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions about this, please ask us.

Chat with a librarian

Posted by Megan on November 2, 2009

I’m very fortunate to be attending the 2009 EDUCAUSE conference in sunny Denver, Colorado this week (…and then staying over a for a brief vacation!). I will not have office hours on November 9th, but in the meantime, you can contact another librarian for urgent research queries.

In fact, you can now chat with a McGill librarian using your favourite instant messaging client. Find us on GTalk (mcgilllib@gmail.com), MSN (ask.library@mcgill.ca), AIM (McGillLib), or Meebo (McGillLib). You can also simply use our website for live chat or e-mail questions.

The library is also on Twitter.
