If you're interested easily keeping up with the latest open access research coming out of the University of Windsor you can now follow @LeddyLibrary on Twitter. Our little bot will be letting our followers know about new articles, books, images, theses and dissertations and other works that are being added to Scholarship at UWindsor.
One of the interesting aspects of developing open access digital collections is the opportunity to bring new life to publications that have a unique local connection. As part of the Southwestern Ontario Digital Archive (SWODA) the library has begun to publish works delving into the history of the University of Windsor.

When an article, book or other work is available open access, that means that anyone, anywhere can download it freely online.
UWindsor alumni who are interested in accessing some of the library's electronic research collections can now do so through the alumni a-to-z list.
Databases listed on http://leddy.uwindsor.ca/atoz-alumni are accessible by alumni while off campus by logging in with their UWin ID and password.
