Open Access Week: Journal Publishing from the University of Windsor

Happy Open Access Week!

One of the ways that the Leddy Library supports making access free to the reader, is by the support and hosting of scholarly journals, including openly licensed ones. The Leddy Library provides software, support and hosting services for academic journals, monographs, and conferences that manage the process from submission to publication.

We currently host the following journals:
 

Write Your Novel at Leddy this November!

Have you always wanted to write a novel? This November, you can write your book at the Leddy Library!

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that fosters community and support in creative endeavours. 

The challenge is this: write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days! So many people get bogged down worrying about grammar and writing poignant prose that they can’t finish a novel.  Write your first draft during NaNoWriMo, and the editing can wait until December!

Lecture series to observe Open Access Week

The Leddy Library is hosting a week-long lecture series to celebrate the 10th annual International Open Access Week.

Open Access week takes place October 22 to 28 and is an opportunity for researchers around the world to continue to learn about the benefits of Open Access, to share their experience with colleagues, and to help improve access to scholarship and research around the world.
