Sneak a peek at MUN Libraries’ new website!

Memorial University Library News - Thu, 2014-09-04 17:26

While the sun was shining this summer, our web folks were sequestered in a tiny windowless room filled with computers and delved into code to build a new website to improve access, navigation and functionality. It even boasts responsive design, making it easy to use on a tablet or phone because we know you are busy and on the move. 

Although we’re still hard at work on the website, we want to give you a sneak peek of what we’ve done and get your thoughts on it. Check it out!

Let us know what you think at www.surveymonkey.com/s/websneakpeek or email libweb@mun.ca

Need Your ID?

SMU Patrick Power Library News - Fri, 2014-08-22 15:44
Our ID-making equipment will be moving around over the next couple weeks.  Sometimes here, other times at the Services Expo over in Loyola (L290).  The schedule can be, admittedly, a little confusing (even for me).

So, in the interest of trying to make this as clear and simple as possible, here are the location(s) and hours if you want to get your  shiny new Saint Mary's University ID card:

LibraryAug-25 10:00 AM - 2:00 PMAug-26 9:00 AM - NoonService Expo - Loyola Conference Hall (L290)Aug-27 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-28 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-29 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-30 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-31 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Sept-01  10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Sept-02  10:00 AM - 4:30 PM Sept-03  10:00 AM - 4:30 PMSept-03  back to the Library@ 4:30, joined by SMUSA (where you can also get your bus pass) Sept-08 onwards 10:00AM - 2:00 PM, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Remember that your ID is needed for a lot of things - it's "official" proof that you're part of Saint Mary's, you need it to get your (free) bus pass and to write exams and, most important of all, it's your Library Card.  Smile!
