In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice Dr Suzanne Matheson's English graduate class (26-540) created a display entitled "Jane Austen at Leddy Library: A Resource Guide for 200 Years of Pride and Prejudice."

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.
The Lance did a nice story about Leddy's Comic Book Club. Check it out. And check out our pretty amazing selection of graphic novels on the 3rd Floor (PN 6700 call number range). It's the time of year when we need something fun and interesting to read, right?
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.
A report from the Netherlands was released discussing the impact of Open Access (OA) Books. The study intended to investigate the impact of OA books on conventional academic book sales.
"Between June 2011 and November 2012, fifty Open Access monographs in various subject areas were published in Open Access by nine participating publishers. For every Open Access title, the publishers provided a similar title that was published in the conventional way. Data were collected about usage, sales and costs, to study the effect of Open Access on monographs."
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.
