A collaboration between the Research Ethics Board and the Leddy Library provides a new platform for researchers to share summary reports of research studies with study participants. Researchers will be able to login with their UWin ID and password to quickly submit summaries online at http://scholar.uwindsor.ca/research-result-summaries through a simple online form. When summaries are complete they will be made available publicly through the site to participants.
Leddy Library is hosting write-ins for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this year.
The write-ins will be held every Thursday in the month of November, from 6-9PM, in room 302 West. Participants of NaNoWriMo as well as individuals who are working on other creative writing projects are welcome to join.
Have you ever found yourself torn between studying and staying fit? Well the Leddy Library has the solution for you! We’ve installed three new study bikes, so you can get your work done while getting a work out!
Stationary bikes with attached desks have been set up along the northern window in the Leddy Library Main building. Use will be on a first-come, first-served basis. These bikes allow users to exercise the body as well as the mind even during the busiest times of the semester.
Welcome and welcome back to The Leddy Library!

Do you have old photos of the local area?
WEDigHistory is a historical archeology project created to look into the past of the Windsor Essex region. We are hosting a Scan-A-Thon where community members can bring in old photos of the Sandwich and surrounding area to be put in a digital archive.
It is happening on Friday, August 25th from 2pm to 8pm on the first floor of the Leddy Library.
Saturday June 11th was the launch event for the Breaking the Colour Barrier: Wilfred "Boomer" Harding & the Chatham Coloured All-Stars (1932-1939) project. Hundreds were in attendance at the WISH Centre in Chatham Ontario to view displays, learn about the project and new website, listen to researchers and family, and even buy some baseball cards of the 34 All-Stars team (proceeds going to the Chatham Kent Black Historical Society).
