Hey everybody I’m back! My name is Matheson and I am in my 2B term of Honours Science at the University of Waterloo. This is my second term as a Library Ambassador, and I wanted to come back because I had such a great experience being a Library Ambassador last fall term.
Do you still use Trellis, our old or 'classic' catalogue?
When University of Waterloo Library moved its catalogue to Primo many years ago, our old catalogue - Trellis - stuck around. In December 2019, the Library will be moving to a new version of Primo, as part of the Collaborative Futures project. Learn more about Collaborative Futures.
Do you find yourself at the library and looking at a particular bookshelf with the sign “Waterloo Reads”? Do you find yourself wondering what it is? Well, Waterloo Reads are books with popular titles that are purchased and selected in collaboration with Words Worth Books in Waterloo.
When you think of a Library, what comes to your mind? Mainly books I’m assuming. Maybe they just serve as a location where you can find a quiet study space, but you haven’t ventured very far from the individual desk sections. This was also my reaction when I thought about libraries until I became a Library Ambassador.
