Climb new heights at The Leddy Library

The good people of University of Windsor's Employee Engagement & Development have just issued you a challenge: How many stairs can you climb in 20 days? Enough to reach the peak of Mount Everest? How about Mont Tremblant?

If you are looking for a good place to start stair climbing on March 11th, you could do well by trekking the heights of Leddy Library.  The stairs from the basement to the 4th floor of our Main Building is made up of 90 steps, or 7.5 flights.

Generate a list with call numbers using Zotero

So, if you wanted to print out a list of your books in Zotero sorted by call-number, you can add the column that contains it by clicking the little icon in the top right corner of the middle Zotero panel:

If you use Zotero, please update your Library Lookup

I use Zotero (along with Evernote) to keep track of the readings and research I use for my work.

While I primarily use it to create bibliographies, I also use as a personal library of sorts.  When I need to find a favourite article, I open up Zotero, do a search if necessary, and open the article on the web (that is, if I haven't already kept an archived copy along with my citation).
