On November 1st 2012, the Leddy Library officially launched Scholarship at UWindsor, the University of Windsor’s (UW) institutional repository (IR). The mandate of Scholarship at UWindsor is to enable researchers in our campus community to showcase, preserve and provide open-access to a wide range of scholarly and creative works. This could include copies of published articles, conference papers, presentations, theses, videos of talks, musical scores, images and more.

GIS Day is held worldwide during Geography Awareness Week, November 17-23, 2013. As part of the celebration, the Academic Data Centre is hosting a GIS exhibit entitled "Discover Food Deserts in Windsor" running Friday, November 8 to Friday, November 22 in the Leddy Library.
It's Open Access Week and to celebrate, I thought I would try to calculate how much it would cost for me to read an article and its bibliography if I couldn't rely on the subscriptions that the Leddy Library currently pays for.
Do you remember learning about ‘food webs’ in school? Do you remember drawing the inter-connections between plants, animals, and the environment where they live? On Friday, October 25th, at noon in Room 302 West in the Leddy Library, we’re going to try to draw a different type of web.
Welcome and welcome back to the University of Windsor!
If you are new to campus and new to the country, we'd like to let you know that the Leddy Library will be offering tours to International Students on September 12th at 11 am and on September 13th at 2pm. Just meet us in the lobby of the Leddy Library to join us!
The Leddy Library has reduced the price of its network laser printing just in time for the new Fall Semester. Costs are
- 7 ¢ per side for monochrome (black and white) printing
- 26 ¢ per side for colour printing
Also of note, our black and white printers now default to double-sided printing. Single sided printing is still available; just select the option before you hit the print button.
The Leddy Library offers an Interlibrary Loan service to its students, staff, and faculty that allow them order materials not available at Leddy through a system called RACER.
We are pleased to announce that as of today, we have enhanced this service. While books must still be picked up at the Circulation Desk once they have arrived on campus, articles ordered through RACER will now be delivered right into your email inbox.
Josef Albers (March 19, 1888 - March 25, 1976) was a German-born American artist and educator whose work, both in Europe and in the United States, formed the basis of some of the most influential and far-reaching art education programs of the twentieth century.
A few years ago, I started a collection at NYU’s Fales Library & Special Collections to document the feminist Riot Grrrl movement in its formative and most active years, from 1989 to 1997. Originally a reaction against the failures of punk to extend its DIY model of empowerment to women, Riot Grrrl encouraged young women to form their own bands, self-publish personal stories and revolutionary agendas in zines, and carve out safe spaces in a violent, misogynist culture.
