*Alternative Sexton Library Space

On the recommendation of Dalhousie’s Health & Safety Office related to concerns about insufficient ventilation, the Sexton Library will not be opening for student and faculty use this fall. Instead, the Dalhousie Libraries will be offering alternative study space on the Sexton campus in the classroom across the hall from the Sexton Library.
