New collections coming to Canadiana

It's been some time since we shared with you future plans for our digital projects. So we are excited to be able to tell you that over the next several months Canadiana will be adding several new collections: Genealogy and Local History; the First World War, and The Cookbook collections.

New title for ECO subscribers: The Municipal World

The Municipal World (CIHM 8_06700) has the distinction of being the oldest continuously published monthly municipal magazine in the world. It is also one of only a handful of Canadian magazines that has been publishing throughout three centuries. Indeed 120 years after its inception, it is still going strong, and a perusal of some of the fascinating articles found in the 108 issues currently available on Early Canadiana Online (ECO), quickly explains its exceptional longevity.

New title for ECO subscribers: Massey-Harris Illustrated

There are currently more than 50 periodicals relating to agriculture available for subscribers on Early Canadiana Online (ECO). Dozens more are slated for digitization over the next few years. This reflects the huge role that agriculture played in the economic, social, and political spheres of 19th century Canada.

Arctic Research using the Canadiana Discovery Portal and ECO

Rhode Island College professor, Russell Potter has some very positive words to say about the recent launch of the Canadiana Discovery Portal. Professor Potter, a leading authority on the ill-fated Arctic Expedition of Sir John Franklin, has appeared in the NOVA documentary "Arctic Passage: Prisoners of the Ice," and is the author of "Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1875".

Great new research tool - Index to The Maritime Medical News

Good news for those of you interested in the history of medicine or health - the Kellogg Health Sciences Library at Dalhousie University, Halifax, has created a detailed index to the Maritime Medical News.
