The article features three special libraries in Canada. These include the Schulich Library of Science and Engineering, Howard and Ross Management Library, and McDonald Campus Library. Schulich Library, which former name was McDonald Physics Building where Nobel Prize winner Ernest Rutherford conducted his experiments in radioactivity, was designed in 1983 by Andrew T. Taylor. Since its inception in 1943, the School of Commerce Library has undergone a name change and it become the Howard Ross Library of Management in honor of Howard Irwin Ross. McDonald Campus Library opened up its dors in 1907 to students enrolled in Education, Agriculture, and Household science.
