Service Update - May 15, 2012
As part of the revitalization program at the Toronto Reference Library, we have formed new subject departments by gathering all related subject material together (including periodicals) on a single floor in a way that reflects how they are used. This makes it more convenient for you to access related materials.
New department arrangements:
Floor 2 Humanities & Social Sciences (including Urban Affairs and eventually, genealogy , maps and local history)
Floor 3 Business, Science & Technology
Floor 4 Languages & Literature
Special Collections (final home on the 5th floor)
Floor 5 Arts
Some of the collections are still in a transition stage because of construction. It will also take a while for the catalogue to reflect all the changes. If you have questions or could not find a book, please ask staff for assistance.
There continues to be some service disruption due to construction:
For the week of May 14:
The Languages collection has been moved from the 5th floor to the 4th floor. However, some multilingual dictionaries and language learning materials remain on the 5th floor for now and will be moved soon.
The Arthur Conan Doyle Room on the 5th floor is temporarily closed. However, the collection is still accessible in the Baldwin Room in Special Collections on the 4th floor.
