The purpose of the Library and Research Centre's (LRC) newsletter was to provide information about the Library and Research Centre activities, provide a forum for the writings of people who work in the LRC, profile individual employees, publish original short fiction and non-fiction, report relevant activities of RFA, OPSEU, and the LRC administration, and publish other news and information that the readership would find interesting.
The inaugural issue of 1987 had no official title and was produced simply and in-house (within the library). No other issue was produced in this simple format.
In 1990 a more professional looking newsletter, NEXUS, was published.
As of the November 2009, Issue 21, NEXUS became available only as an e-issue initially emailed to each member of Library staff, later accessed through: hhtp://www.ryerson.ca/library/info/nexus/.
