One of the ways that the Leddy Library supports making access free to the reader, is by the support and hosting of scholarly journals, including openly licensed ones.

Have you always wanted to write a novel? This November, you can write your book at the Leddy Library!
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that fosters community and support in creative endeavours.
The challenge is this: write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days! So many people get bogged down worrying about grammar and writing poignant prose that they can’t finish a novel. Write your first draft during NaNoWriMo, and the editing can wait until December!
The Leddy Library is hosting a week-long lecture series to celebrate the 10th annual International Open Access Week.
Open Access week takes place October 22 to 28 and is an opportunity for researchers around the world to continue to learn about the benefits of Open Access, to share their experience with colleagues, and to help improve access to scholarship and research around the world.
The Leddy library is excited to announce its recent increase in coverage of the historic newspaper, the Detroit Free Press. Previously covering issues from 1831-1922, Leddy now has access to 1923-1999 as well!
