Book a Library Visit


Due to the evolving pandemic situation in Halifax, the MSVU Library & Archives will move to mainly virtual operations (i.e. no in-person bookings) effective Wednesday morning, April 28, 2021.

“Curbside” pick-up services will continue, but will move to the Assisi Desk entrance; book returns will be available at Assisi as well as via the blue return bin outside the main McCain Centre entrance. View the 'Curbside" pickup and delivery service details here.

We will provide another update as soon as we are able to once again welcome students, faculty and staff on-campus by appointment.
