Remembering Bill Watson, former University LibrarianWatson worked at McGill and University of British Columbia before coming to Waterloo. Chairman of a national committee on automation in libraries in 1969, Bill accurately predicted a time when library operations would be driven by computers, and not the card catalogues of the time.
Sticking up for studentsInspired by encouraging messages posted in departments across the university, Student Engagement Committee co-chair Mary Lynne Bartlett and some of her student Library Ambassadors got to work at spreading the love in the Davis Centre Library:
How do YOU use the Library catalogue?University of Waterloo Library is working with a group of Ontario universities to develop a common platform for discovering scholarly resources and collections. This will mean users will benefit from easier discovery and retrieval of resources across Ontario, and libraries will benefit from each other's expertise and work more closely to manage e-resources and preserve print collections. While there are many advantages to this approach, some of the ways that you currently access resources will change. Specifically, over the next few years, the TRELLIS catalogue will be retired by the software vendor and we will implement a new system in its place.
