Research News 2012This spring, the Libraries received a grant from the Government of Canada to support the purchase of the 2011 Microlog microfiche set. Microlog is the clearinghouse for Canadian research and report literature in all subject disciplines. The set includes research, scientific, technical and annual reports, policy papers and statistical materials and is indexed in the Canadian Research Index, available online through the Libraries website. The success of our students and researchers depends on access to high-quality and often uniquely held resources. The generosity of our donors is greatly appreciated!

Later this spring, the Libraries will run a 3 month trial of Érudit, a electronic resource platform of scholarly and cultural journals, books, proceedings, theses, documents, and data formed by the Université de Montréal, Université Laval, and Université du Québec à Montréal. Érudit collocates 150 Canadian publishers, focusing on the dissemination of French-language Canadian journals in the humanities and social sciences. Many of these titles are already available in the library catalogue as open-access titles; however, access to the most recent 2-3 years of content is restricted to subscribers only. This trial will provide access to the most recent content. Look for an announcement about the trial and how to access the content in the near future.
