LNAP - Long Night Against Procrastination

The Library, in collaboration with the Centre for Academic Excellence is participating in the Long Night Against Prograstination this Thursday, November 5 between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

In addition to extended Reference hours we will be offering our popular Zotero Workshops in both French and English.

Zotero allows you to capture references in databases, as well as other items on the internet, and then using them to incorporate as citations into papers and generate bibliographies in whatever format you choose.

This workshop will take place in the Brenda Wallace Computer Room at the J.N. Desmarais Library.

The French class starts at 7:00 p.m. sharp; the English session at 8:00 p.m. sharp.

If you would like to enrol please email (for the English workship) and for its French counterpart.

In addition, on November 5 we kick off our month-long Amnesty program.

Starting on that day you will pay nothing for your overdues so long as you bring back books, and

  •  contribute half of your fine (which will be sent to the United Way) or
  • bring a non-perishable food item (which will be donated to the Laurentian Food Bank)

The Amnesty program will continue until December 5!

  • Only overdues on books will be forgiven;
  • Overdue books must be returned in good condition
