I use Zotero (along with Evernote) to keep track of the readings and research I use for my work.
While I primarily use it to create bibliographies, I also use as a personal library of sorts. When I need to find a favourite article, I open up Zotero, do a search if necessary, and open the article on the web (that is, if I haven't already kept an archived copy along with my citation).
Upcoming planned network upgrades to the University of Toronto Library’s data center will affect all Scholars Portal services on Monday, December 16 from 7 - 8 a.m.

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.
