The Library celebrates University of Waterloo's 60th

On July 1, 1957 the Waterloo College Associate Faculties was founded in two temporary buildings. In 2017, University of Waterloo celebrates 60 years of history, growth and excellence that grew those small beginnings into Canada's most innovative university.

An integral part of that history, the Library has grown and evolved along with the University. The specialized knowledge, resources and services the Library provides to every corner of the University contribute directly to the success of its students, faculty and staff.

Promoting women and information literacy with Wikipedia

Barriers to education, gender-based harassment and other factors have lead to a gender imbalance in many fields, and in the representation of woman in academic sources. Only 17% of Wikipedia's notable profiles are of women, and 15% of Wikipedia editors are women; University of Waterloo Archivist Danielle Robichaud and Librarian Sarah Brown are hoping to change that.
