NUR2 630 Clinical Project 1 (KT)

Further to Quebec government and university directives, McGill campuses will be closed as of March 14 for two weeks. As a result, all library branches will be closed until March 30th. Library staff will continue to provide virtual reference during service hours. I will also be available via email and virtual consultation. Please register for appointments and clinics as usual and you will receive information about how to call in using Zoom or Skype.

For more information about the closure, please visit our COVID -19 | Library Closure & Service Disruptions FAQ.
