It's come to our attention that the front page of the Leddy Library website doesn't always look right for those using Internet Explorer.
We think we have isolated the problem. Ironically, it appears that selecting the Compatibility View from Internet Explorer's Tools menu, causes our page to break.
Compatibility View is an option in that displays websites as if you were using an earlier version of Internet Explorer. As this is not necessary for our website, we suggest that you turn off or deselect this option
Given the dearth of soldiers’ diaries, Orderly Books provides historically valuable information about soldiers’ lives. Contains handwritten orderly books from both sides of the Revolutionary War, the French and Indian War, the War of 1812, the frontier and other deployments, documenting military orders, movements and engagements by brigade, regiment, company and other specific military units between 1748 and 1817.

Expiring Oct. 19, 2012 these journals/papers represent Queen Victoria's life - from childhood, through accession, marriage, bereavement and the long years of widowhood - and through her eyes we also see the changing face of the nineteenth century, from her first diary entry in 1832 to shortly before her death in 1901, along with separate photographs of the many illustrations and inserts within the pages.

While issues related to academic publishing and open access have been quietly churning away for many years now, these issues have started to surface more publicly since the recent boycott of the academic publish Elsevier this spring and the push in the UK to support wider access to publicly funded research.
