The Library’s Space is Getting Optimized!
June 7, 2022

As of Monday June 6th, part of the Library’s collection that is located on the 7th floor is no longer in open access. Following an evaluation, these books have been targeted to be moved into a conservation centre in order to improve the Library’s seating capacity. Once the move is complete, an announcement will be made concerning the procedures for obtaining these documents. In the meantime, you may still check out these resources by clicking on the “Obtenir” (Request) option within the document’s notice in Sofia so that you may submit a “place hold” request.

Should you require help with locating documents, please know that the Circulation and Reference Desks staff is always available to assist you. You may also reach us via chat by using our website’s Ask a question option website or by emailing us at
