Announcement

UNB Libraries: online operations only

UNB Libraries has shifted operations to online delivery of services and resources. We are now closed to in-person access and will be focused on online services to students as they finish off the term remotely, to instructors as they complete this term’s courses, and to the provision of resources and support for student and faculty researchers. Links to library services, resources and contact information to support study and research from home are found here: https://lib.unb.ca/services/researching-remotely

Online collections and research guides will be available, but access to physical collections will not be possible.  Document Delivery service will continue in digital format to the extent possible. 

Late fees will be automatically suspended for items due from March 14, 2020 to September 14, 2020. You can still return items to our book drop at the back of the Harriet Irving Library or to the Hans W. Klohn Commons. Please do not return items if you are self-isolating. Items can be renewed online.  Please use AskUs if you need help.

We thank you for your understanding in these difficult circumstances.

Dean, UNB Libraries

Art Exhibition at the HIL: Magic in the Real

Magic in the Real: The Mystery That Breathes Behind Things

The Harriet Irving Library is pleased to present the most recent collection of drawings and micro-photographs by alumnus ('74), and College for Extended Learning instructor, Biff Mitchell. This newest exhibition Magic in the Real: The Mystery That Breathes Behind Things takes us on a journey into the woods. The photos imbue the silence and mystery of nature, while the abstract drawings on wood bring us deeper into the energy of movement and form within the forest itself. The collection offers the viewer time to contemplate the interconnectivity of nature to the human experience, and attempt to act as Mitchell states; "as a portal into vestiges of the tree’s life energy containing the tree’s memories."

 Mitchell is a well- respected Fredericton artist and the author of seven novels. An inventive photographer, Biff professes that "photography is my passion. Every second, from capturing the image to post-processing, is sheer joy."

 The show is located on the main floor of the HIL, and runs from September through the end of October. All are welcome.
