The Libraries has received a $2000 matching library grant from the International Council for Canadian Studies Library Support Program through a contribution of the Government of Canada and with the assistance of the Consulate General of Canada in Seattle, to support the purchase of the 2007 Federal Non-Depository documents on microfiche (Microlog).

Microlog includes research, scientific, technical and annual reports, policy papers and statistical materials issued by research institutes and government laboratories; policy, social, economic, and political reports; Statistics Canada monographs, and serials. These documents are noted in the library catalog, and are indexed and abstracted in the online Canadian Research Index, available through the University Libraries.

The Library Support Program is designed to assist university libraries to strengthen their Canadiana library holdings in order to support teaching and research in Canadian Studies. Funds are available only for the purchase of library materials considered to be Canadiana and which are deemed by the Embassy of Canada or High Commission to qualify as having a specific bearing on the study of Canada and/or Canadian culture.
