Scholarship at UWindsor: A Year At a Glance

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.

Printing at Leddy is now cheaper and greener

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.

New! Articles delivered by email from RACER Interlibrary Loan

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.

Grrrl Collected

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.
