Physical Spaces

Microforms In Transition!

Recently at the Harriet Irving Library, Microforms has begun its move into a newly developed space in the basement! While there is some material left on the third floor, much of the collection and equipment has moved downstairs.

While we are in the midst of this transition, we’d like to highlight that if you have any questions the Microforms staff are here to help you during regular office hours. There is a service desk in the basement space, and the main Microforms office can be found in their new location on the third floor in Room 309.

Microforms Has Moved!

The Microforms office has been relocated to Room 309 in the HIL.

Still on the 3rd floor, it is now located at the back of the building, near the rear elevator, across from the Government Documents, Data, and Maps/GIS Department.

Need to talk with your classmates?

Until the start of exams (Fri, Dec 9th, 2011), you will be allowed to use HIL Room 310 for the purpose of studying in a group in order to talk about your work above a whisper!

If you are in need of quiet study space, look for individual study carrels and tables in the HIL on the 4th floor.

Reading For Fun

The popular reading collections launched late last year at HIL and the Science and Forestry Library are proving…well, popular.  We highly recommend reading for pleasure and relaxation and invite you to visit one or both locations to stock up on great books.  You will find both fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as graphic novels.   (The collection at HIL is opposite the Film Collection on the ground floor.)

We invite donations for these collections.  We are looking particularly for recent trade paperbacks in “like new” condition.  We will also accept hardcover books with dust jackets.

If you have suggestions for books you’d like to see on our shelves, please let us know at:

Renovations At The Harriet Irving Library

Renovations are currently underway in the first floor central hallway and the central staircase of the Harriet Irving Library in Fredericton. Over the next week or so, there will be periods when these areas are closed to library visitors. Watch for signs to indicate alternate routes through the building where necessary! If you need assistance, please ask at any one of the HIL service desks.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience these renovations may cause. Thank you for your patience.
