Online repository to provide open access to UWindsor research

A new service of the Leddy Library will begin to bring together in one place the work done by UWindsor scholars.

The institutional repository Scholarship at UWindsor is intended to showcase campus researchers by providing open access to a wide range of their scholarly and creative works. This could include copies of published articles where permitted, conference papers, presentations, theses, videos of talks, musical scores, images and more, says Dave Johnston, the librarian heading up the project.

Orientation session welcomes new faculty members to campus

Jason Kiernan is excited to be at the University of Windsor.

He left a position as a nurse practitioner at Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital to pursue a new career path as a lecturer in the Faculty of Nursing.

“I wanted to transition into more of a research role and for a number of reasons, that wasn’t going to happen at the hospital,” Kiernan says.

He was one of seven new faculty members attending an orientation session Monday, August 13.
