Loan Policy Changes

As we prepare for the launch of an exciting new service that will simplify borrowing between 16 Ontario University Libraries, we are making some changes to our loan policies.

Loan periods for most books in our collection will be changing to 120 days + unlimited renewals for all students, faculty and staff. This means that as long as you continue to renew your book online, users with active accounts can keep the book as long as you need. 

Library Renewals Available Jan 6th

Given the library's announced migration to Omni, our upgraded library system, we are unable to process renewals of items until Monday January 6th. 

If you need to renew items and are unable to get to the library in person, you can also call us at 519-253-3000 ext. 3402.

In addition to renewals:

For every book you read this summer, cast a ballot for a chance to win a special book-related prize. The more books you read, the greater your chance of winning!

fluoride: (mis)information

We invite members from across the University of Windsor campus, and the greater Windsor-Essex community, to drop by and visit our latest exhibit. Located on the main floor of the Leddy Library, learn about how information is used and misused in the very public controversy over community water fluoridation programs.
