Access to RefWorks will end in August, 2015

The Leddy Library has provided access to the RefWorks citation management system through a consortial arrangement with the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). This contract will no longer be renewed by OCUL.

As such, all access to RefWorks via the Leddy Library will cease. We urge users of RefWorks to export their references by August, 2015 because after this time it will no longer be possible to do so.

The Importance of Collecting Open Access Content at the Institutional Level

The library has a long history of collecting research at the institutional level. We have a responsibility for the collection of our graduate theses and dissertations. We have also always collected faculty publications albeit through subscriptions. However the emergence of open access means that we have begun to collect faculty content in a way that we didn't have to previously.

Publishers and Open Access Article Posting Policies

When talking about open access and the new Tri-Council and Windsor policies with faculty (http://leddy.uwindsor.ca/university-windsor-senate-passes-open-access-policy) there are some common questions we encounter. We are developing an FAQ, however in this post I'd like to address the question of author rights, publishing and article posting policies.
