Redpath Book Display

Science Literacy Week (SLW) in Canada is a celebration of the unique relationship each of us shares with science and how we harness its power. This year's SLW is dedicated to the fascinating world of energy and its pivotal role in scientific and technological progress. With "E is for energy" as our central theme for the year, the SLW team invites us to explore the diverse facets of energy, its modern applications, and its profound impact on our lives.

To foster this exploration within the McGill Community, the HSSL Library is pleased to present a virtual collection of books tailored to satisfy your curiosity about energy. So, whether you decide to pick up a book or "power up" your knowledge, embark on this journey and enjoy the discoveries!

You can also check-out our in-person exhibit and book display on the main floor of the Redpath Library Building. This year's exhibit "Abdominal Hive" features embroidered organs crafted by local artist Catherine Tsatoumas and anatomical models from the Schulich Library of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Engineering. Both the exhibit and the display will be up until October 13th, 2023.
