Humanities Week Events from September 12-16th!

Thanks to the support of the President’s Office and the grand success of last year’s “Why Humanities” Week, we are very excited to announce that Humanities Week will take place September 12-16th! In a popular repeat from last year’s event, students will have an opportunity to win a semester of free tuition by submitting their take on What do the Humanities Mean to You? Entrants are asked to produce a video, essay, poem or proclamation outlining the importance and value of the humanities.

Fall 2016 Leddy Library Reading Challenge!

The Fall 2016 Leddy Library Reading Challenge is a social group for ALL members of the University of Windsor community. Meetings are every Tuesday from 3-4 p.m. until the beginning of December!

The main objective of this group is to create a larger sense of community on campus while allowing for students, faculty, and library staff to share a social-academic space for critical thinking and literature review.

Still not certain this group is for you - well how about some incentive to start reading?

Elsevier Acqusition of SSRN

On May 17th publishing giant Elsevier announced it had acquired the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). This potentially marks a major change in scholarly communications landscape and is the first time a large academic publisher has stepped into the repository landscape. The stated benefits of this change include potential integration with existing platforms such as Scopus and the Mendely - another relatively recent purchase by Elsevier.

Black Lives Matter - A Reading List

To celebrate Black History Month, the Leddy Library is sharing The Left Bank Books` Black Lives Matter Reading List. The Left Bank Books bookstore is located in St. Louis, Missouri.
