Changes at UNB Libraries, Summer 2019

Several areas of UNB Libraries are undergoing changes this Summer. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience as we work to transform our space.

HARRIET IRVING LIBRARY


The 3rd floor of the HIL will be closed due to construction, starting in May 2019. Collections previously housed on this floor have been relocated:

UNB Archives & Special Collections is closed for re-organization and construction as it increases its storage capacity, allowing for the growth of historical research collections. All reference services are suspended from 1 May to 31 August, 2019. This includes use of the Archives reading room, access to archival holdings, and digital reproduction requests.  Contact: archives@unb.ca, or call 506-453-4748.

SCIENCE & FORESTRY LIBRARY

The Science & Forestry Library in the IUC Complex will operate under limited access to library users this summer between Sunday, April 28th – Monday, September 2rd. Books and other items may be requested for pick-up, but the Library will not be open for general use (i.e. study space, use of computer terminals, etc.) during Summer 2019. We are taking actions to ensure continuity of service to the Science & Forestry Library community.

Digital Media Editing Studio @ HIL

digitalmediaeditingstudio

In recognition of the increasing use of digital media modalities for academic and creative expression, UNB Libraries is now providing space for working on media projects (e.g. video, sound, and image, 3D). The studio is primarily intended to meet the multimedia creation and editing needs of UNB students.

The Digital Media Editing Studio is equipped with three 27″ iMacs with Retina 5K display, each loaded with the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite of software applications as well as iMovie and Garageband. Studio quality headphones (ATH-M20x) and Apple SuperDrives to read optical media such as CDs and DVDs are also available.

This new studio supports the creative learning environment at UNB Libraries. We’ve got the space and the tools for you to do your best work. Drop by and check out the new studio in the John B. McNair Learning Commons on the first floor of the Harriet Irving Library.


If you would like more information about the new Digital Media Editing Studio, please contact Marc Bragdon, Film Librarian at UNB Fredericton, (506-458-7741).
