Science Literacy Week is a week-long celebration of science-based activities that highlight our outstanding scientists and science communicators from coast-to-coast. Here's how we are celebrating at the University of Waterloo:
In celebration of the University of Waterloo's 60th anniversary and Canada's 150th year since confederation, the Library's Geospatial Centre has created a graphic visualization of the City of Waterloo's population growth, from 1855 to 2016.
Starting Sunday July 23, Davis Centre Library will be open 24 hours, except for closing 2:00 AM to 8:00 AM on Sundays. These extended hours will end at 12:00 AM on Friday August 11.
All services will close daily at 12:00 AM. Attendants will be present at Davis Centre Library for security purposes and to monitor for noise, cell phone use and hot foods - which are not permitted in the Library.
The United Way’s annual Day of Caring is an experience that goes beyond fundraising, giving volunteers a hands-on connection to the work done by the organization. Over 100 volunteers across Waterloo Region took part in 15 projects aiding United Way-sponsored programs. Money can’t buy everything, and sometimes a project just needs a few extra helping hands to get the job done.
The University of Waterloo's institutional repository, UWSpace, has just uploaded its 500th article. This Library service was created to host the publications of Waterloo faculty, students and staff. Building on the success of our electronic theses and dissertations deposits, UWSpace now provides researchers with a free, secure and long-term platform for the presentation, dissemination and preservation of their research and scholarship.
