McGill’s medical library is closing, staff say

“McGill University’s insistence that its Life Sciences Library in the faculty of medicine building is not closing has some staff members calling the situation “laughable.” “Yes, they’re leaving the name on the door in the McIntyre Medical Building,” said Angella Lambrou, a liaison librarian for the school of nursing who has been working there for 30 years. “But the entire collection is moving. So it’s going to be a library without any books in it.” David Roseman, vice-president of labour relations for MUNACA, the union representing library assistants, also scoffed at the idea that the medical library — the first of its kind in Canada, dating from 1823 — isn’t closing.” (via Montreal Gazette)
