What it's like being a Senior Library Ambassador: written by Mariam Rizvi

Hello everyone! My name is Mariam and I am a 4A Environment and Business student. I am returning as the Senior Library Ambassador for the current Fall term!

Save your (Primo) shelf

In December 10, 2019, University of Waterloo Library is moving to a new shared Library system called Omni, including a new and improved version of our Primo catalogue. Omni will provide fast and easy access to a vast collection of high-quality, academic material from 14 Ontario university libraries!

Unfortunately, saved items and search settings in your current Primo account will not migrate to the new version.

Make sure you export your e-shelf items and and saved searches by December 6, 2019.
