Hands-on Naloxone Workshop
Join us for one of two hands-on Naloxone workshop sessions with Kim Primok from the Middlesex-London Health Unit. Kim is a public health nurse with 6 years experience in sexual health and harm reduction. She will share the history of the Naloxone programming within MLHU and the community, discuss what Naloxone is and how it is used to reverse an opioid overdose and provide training on how to use Naloxone to save a life. Naloxone kits will be available for those who wish to have one. Each session is limited to 20 attendees.

The FIMS terrace is now closed for the season.
The terrace, accessed through the FIMS Graduate Library, is open for our FIMS graduate community to use during warmer weather. The Terrace has seating and tables so you can work outdoors. It’s also a great place to eat your lunch!
The latest addition to our Indigenous Collection is Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead.
Our Indigenous Collection showcases poetry, sci-fi, graphic novels, non-fiction and more from Indigenous writers. See them on display in the library, or view the collection online, here. All books are available to be checked-out overnight. Further resources on diversity and decolonization can be found here.

Privacy in the Library
Privacy in the Library is part of our privacy initiative, in alliance with the Library Freedom Project and Tor Project. Our community strongly values privacy and intellectual freedom, which are threatened by surveillance, corporate data mining, censorship regimes, etc. Our goal is to empower members of our community, and in turn, members of their own communities, to protect their right to privacy and free expressions by advocating, implementing, and teaching information privacy tools and techniques.
The Privacy in the Library website is a hub of information regarding our work within the initiative, as well as a collection of resources to help guide people in protecting their information privacy.
