Libraries

Starting December 8, the Library’s room booking system will be accepting reservations 2 weeks in advance. This change will lead to a more equitable sharing of study spaces through the online system. Library users will still be able to book group study rooms for up to 2 hours at a time and may book up to 4 hours per week.

For more information on how students, staff, and faculty can book a group study room at the Library, please visit: http://libraryrooms.mcgill.ca/booking/groupstudy
