Leddy Library offering modified services for fall semester

Leddy Library offering modified services for fall semester

With most classes moving online, the Leddy Library has modified its services to support the online fall semester.

Research consultations with librarians will continue to be available online and select on-campus services have been modified to safely resume operations.

While the library building remains closed for the fall semester, it can be accessed by appointment for select services and material pickup.


Contactless pickup and digital delivery of library materials now available for undergrad students

Contactless pickup and digital delivery services at Leddy Library are now available to all undergraduate students.

The library launched the new services to resume the borrowing of physical materials in mid-July to faculty and graduate students.

“The launch went very well with roughly 300 items requested and processed,” said Dave Johnston, head of Access Services. “We are excited to expand the services to the rest of campus.”

Since the building closure in March, the campus has relied on the electronic resources available through the library.


Contactless pickup and digital delivery services begin at Leddy Library

Contactless pickup and digital delivery services begin this week at the Leddy Library.

The library will now allow patrons to request and pick up physical loan materials via the library website. Patrons may place requests online for physical resources, with pickup dates beginning Friday, July 17.

In addition, digital delivery services will enable patrons to request electronic files of scanned material within the allowable copyright laws and fair dealing guidelines.


Librarian tackles virtual services

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed new questions for research and teaching on campus, and the Leddy Library is finding answers.

Information services librarian Adam Mulcaster is currently helping a group of researchers in the faculties of nursing; science; and arts, humanities, and social sciences identify literature to support their work in assessing the impact of COVID-19 on regional health care workers, particularly those who are crossing the international border daily to commute to their jobs in Michigan.

In the technological age of information, analytics, and statistics, almost everything we do can be converted into research data. For the Leddy Library’s new academic data librarian, Berenica Vejvoda, the data collected from our everyday actions has the potential to solve problems, assist decision making, create new knowledge, and tell compelling stories.

Vejvoda will help the campus community understand, use, and analyze data through the services provided by Leddy Library’s Academic Data Centre.
