In the second half of the Winter 2015 term, the Waterloo campus Library will have fewer after-midnight opening hours than in other recent terms.
Hours are being reduced only during times when usage data indicates very low activity at our service desk. The reductions also take into account the availability at the affected times of other study locations on campus, such as the 24 Hour Lounge and Concourse.
Living Library is a collection of "human books" offered on "loan" to students, staff and faculty. Facilitated by Living Library Librarians, readers "borrow" the human book for up to 20 minutes and engage in a free flowing conversation. This is a great opportunity to talk to people one-on-one about their diverse experiences.
Date: February 3rd
Time: 2pm - 5pm
Location: Library, 2nd Floor
Target Audience: Laurier Students, Faculty, Staff and Community
The Laurier Archives is happy to announce that Waterloo College alumnus Ward Kaiser (’45) has donated materials from his personal collection for archival preservation and research.
Ward Kaiser is a publisher, author, pastor, and activist. The breadth and impact of his diverse work led to him being named recipient of the 1968 Waterloo Lutheran University Alumnus of the Year award. Kaiser is perhaps best known in the map publishing realm as he introduced the provocative Peters projection map to North America.
Wilfrid Laurier University is closed Monday, Feb. 2, due to severe winter weather. This includes all Library locations and services.

On Thursday, January 8 at 8:45 a.m., the Library course readings system, ARES, will be enhanced to use the Laurier Single Sign On (SSO) authentication system. With the recent integration of the Laurier SSO with MyLearningSpace and the previous integration with the Library off-campus login system, we hope that you will have a more user-friendly experience (fewer sign-ins) with the Library and affiliated services.
The enhancement should last no more than 30 minutes, ending at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, January 8.
Faculty, grad students and staff are reminded to renew or return all term loan items before January 15, 2015.
Click here to renew these items by accessing your Library account through the Library web site.
Be sure to verify the renewal(s). The new due date is May 15, 2015. Please return items that are not renewed to any of the TUG Libraries.
