Starting on Monday February 12th we will be conducting some regular sweeps of the library to help us assess space use. You may notice some of our staff wandering up and down the building with clipboards during this time. They will collecting information on how many patrons are using different spaces in the building. They will not be collecting information about any of our patrons. The information collected will be used for internal space planning purposes only. Staff will be as unobtrusive as possible and there should be no disruption.
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.

► Sci-Hub Problems and Questions
What is Sci-Hub?
Sci-Hub is a search interface that works with a repository called Library Genesis (LibGen) to give readers access to a collection of articles taken illegally from scientific journals. In addition to drawing on the LibGen repository, Sci-Hub also uses the login credentials of university employees to bypass institutional authentication barriers and access journal content to which the university has licensed access.
