In addition, Canadian geography research just got a little bit easier now that UW Libraries have online access to the back catalog of the Polar Record and the Canadian Geographer. First published in 1931, the Polar Record is a peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of polar exploration and research. The Libraries’ back-catalog purchase includes online access for issues published between 1931 and 2002. Canadian Geographer covers both Canadian and global geographical research. The back-catalog purchase includes online access for issues published between 1950 and 1996.

A one-year trial subscription to CAMPUS and purchases of the back files for Polar Record and Canadian Geographer were made possible through the generous support of the Kenneth S. and Faye G. Allen Libraries’ Endowment and the Canadian Studies Center’s Title VI grant.
