Take Our Survey. Win Prizes.

Every few years the Library conducts a comprehensive survey of our users to find out what they like (or don't like) about our services, collections, just about anything.  We're always looking at ways to make improvements around here and this kind of feedback really helps give us direction.

Well it's that time again.  From February 25 to March 15 we're inviting everyone to fill out an online, easy to understand, no more than 10 minutes, survey.  Not only can you check off your answers to a series of questions, you can also submit comments in your own words so that we know exactly what you think.

As you all know, there have been an awful lot of significant changes here at the Library since our last survey in '09 - the Atrium, new entrance, new service desks, renos to the main and upper floors.  All the more reason for you to participate.

Another reason? Great prizes! As an incentive (and thank you) we'll be giving away an iPad2 to one lucky student as well as ten…

Food for Fines Starts Again

In an annual tradition, university and college libraries across Nova Scotia are raising money for local food banks.  Food for Fines, as its name implies, allows borrowers who have overdue books, etc. to bring in non-perishable food items instead of money - each item reduces the fine by $2 (maximum of $20).  All donations (cash is also accepted) can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk.

Here at Saint Mary's, donations will be given to Feed Nova Scotia and the campus food bank.  This is your classic win/win situation. Students can save $$$ and the food banks (and those who use them) get some much-appreciated help.

This year's campaign starts today and runs until February 17. Congratulations to everyone involved.
