Farewell to the Class of 2013!

ConvocationWith exams finally over, many McGill students can look forward to their next academic milestone – convocation!

Even though your studying days may be behind you, don’t forget that the library will still be there for you – for example, if you want to borrow books, you can visit one of our many branches to get a new membership card.  Also, did you know that alumni far and wide are able to connect with us virtually?  Take a look at the wide variety of research databases that are still accessible from the comfort of your own home!

Budding genealogists eager to map out their family tree or nostalgic alumni who want to relive their university glory days will want to explore our extensive digital yearbook collections.  ‘Flip’ through McGill’s pages of the past, an extensive collection of Old McGill yearbooks (1898-2000) and Clan Macdonald yearbooks (1931-1960).

Whether you want a glimpse of a young William Shatner rehearsing for the McGill Red and White Review (he went by Bill in his pre-Captain Kirk days):

– or hope to discover long-lost photos of your own beloved grandmother, you can easily look up alumni by name, or browse by year.  Try it out for yourself!

Congratulations to the Class of 2013!  Best wishes for this next chapter of your lives – you’re in pretty good company!
