Surprises through the Canadian Federal Science Library Portal

If you've ever been surprised at something useful you've come across browsing library shelves you could be equally surprised at resources you uncover searching this new gateway to Canadian Federal Science Libraries. I was when I found an entry for a 1913 book The Newspaper by G. Binney Dibblee with this image as frontispiece.

From the 6 March press release:
The Federal Science Library is a one-stop, self-serve web portal that makes government research and resources visible to all Canadians by connecting them with the collections of seven departmental libraries. The portal allows users to view or request items from a vast collection of publications in science, technology, engineering and health and other related economic, policy and program information. Wherever possible, departmental publications, reports, data sets and other content are freely available for anyone to access or download. It also gives users the option to expand their search beyond the holdings of the seven federal science libraries to include millions of publications from around the globe.
The Federal Science Library partners are:

  • Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
  • Environment and Climate Change Canada
  • Fisheries and Oceans Canada
  • Health Canada
  • National Research Council Canada
  • Natural Resources Canada
  • Public Health Agency of Canada
