Safari Books discontinued
Safari Books, a package of 299 technology e-books from O’Reilly Media, has been discontinued by the vendor and is no longer available to students, faculty and staff. O’Reilly has replaced the previous package with a new e-learning platform, similar to Lynda.com. The University of Windsor already provides free access to Lynda.com for students, faculty and staff!

Here at the Leddy Library, we’re gearing up for a large group of new students to flock to the library! We have lots of resources—from research help to assistance with finding data and statistics. But did you know that every discipline has their very own librarian?
Our information services librarians liaise with different departments, and they can help you to succeed here at the University of Windsor. They can assist you in finding relevant, scholarly resources for your papers, figuring out how to navigate databases, evaluating resources, and much more!
The UWill Discover Student Research Collaboratory@Leddy will provide the University of Windsor’s most inquisitive minds with state-of-the-art dynamic space to share their findings and develop collaborative relationships with partners from across campus and globally. This innovative digital space will serve not only as a virtual window to the world, but also as a physical community encouraging collaborative communities of inquiry and knowledge creation.
WHEN: Thursday, June 21 from 2-4 PM
WHERE: Leddy Library’s ground floor, just when you walk into the library. You can’t miss it!
WHY: Release all your stress and worry into a button and then wear it with pride.
We will have magazines, coloured paper and markers for the creative types, and if you want to bring your own picture, you can do that too! The diameter of a button printout is 2.56”. Be sure to allow for the edge of the paper to curl under during the making of a button (the actual button ends up being 2.2”).
While we have a comprehensive collection of books and journal articles (both in print and online), we also have other things that you can either borrow or sign out from the Information Desk.
Items you can sign out (using your UWin card):
The end of winter term is approaching and spring is just around the corner!
This year when you pay your library fines you’ll also be helping your fellow students in need! The campus food bank is in of need of healthy goods that meet the needs of our student population.
As a result, the Leddy Library is donating 10% of the fines we receive to the campus food bank so that they can help meet the needs of students here at the University of Windsor.
Just reminder that our extended exam hours will begin this weekend leading up to the first week of exams. Please review the library hours for details.
We will be open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday. On Friday and Saturday the library will be open until 2am.
