Catherine Steeves, Vice-Provost and Chief LibrarianWelcome to the first edition of Western Libraries Insider. We look forward to highlighting for you the work that we do, gems from our collections, special projects and initiatives, and to introducing you to some of the amazing staff that make it happen.

Featured in this edition are two digital heritage initiatives, the Labatt Virtual Exhibit and the Historical Topographic Map Digitization Project which demonstrate how, through collaborative projects, Western Libraries can extend the reach of our collections to the world.

We are also sharing with you how we empower scholars to think critically about information in a networked society through our information literacy and open access programming. The skills and knowledge developed promote academic success and prepare graduates to contribute to the knowledge economy and a civil society.

I thank you for your support of Western Libraries and interest in our activities.
