Report on the impact of OA books released

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."

Upcoming talk : A field guide to reading and writing ecosystems

Do you remember learning about ‘food webs’ in school?  Do you remember drawing the inter-connections between plants, animals, and the environment where they live?  On Friday, October 25th, at noon in Room 302 West in the Leddy Library, we’re going to try to draw a different type of web.

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.
