Access to the library's equipment and print collections remains suspended until further notice. Please email for assistance if you need any resources that can only be found in our print collection, and staff will attempt to locate or secure electronic access for you.

You can request a chapter scan for books, or "scan and send" for articles from our print collection. Click the book or journal title in your search from the Library homepage to see these options.

The library is offering a limited curbside pickup option that will allow McMaster students, post docs and faculty to access print books that cannot be made available electronically. Please check the Library's Limited Curbside Pick-Up Service page for further details.
