Open Access Week 2014 is here!

International Open Access Week (October 20-26th is) is a global event in its eighth year which draws attention to the benefits of Open Access to research and seeks to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research. To borrow from Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication , "Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.

The New Leddy Library Information Desk is now Open!

It's open and it's beautiful! After many months, the wait is over! On July 31st, the Leddy Library opened its brand new "one stop shop" for students, staff and faculty. The desk includes services from 3 areas (reference, circulation and IT assistance) conveniently located as you enter the building. Joey Zhou, an HK grad student, is the first to use our brand new circulation desk! Yay!! Please drop by and check out our new area!


Students Final Projects: History 43-397 (Winter 2014)

This semester, History majors from the University of Windsor took part in an innovative new class, History on the Web(43-397).  Team taught by Dr Rob Nelson (History) and Dr Heidi LM Jacobs (Leddy Library), students engaged in a range of projects that investigated issues related to how history is presented, preserved and made accessible on the web.  We talked about public history, academic history, spatial history alongside issues of open access, digital preservation, and digital curation.
