See below for description. Note that this service may provide links to full text that UPEI does not license. If you find materials that you want but cannot access, remember to use Interlibrary Loan to request copies. Be sure to check our journal list if you are off-campus because we may have that already licensed.

 

Description taken from press release, March 2017:

Search seven federal libraries!
 
Federal Science Library creates a window into government science library collections and scientific research for all Canadians

Access to relevant, high-quality information is at the heart of every successful decision, policy, or research outcome. The Federal Science Library gives Canadians and researchers everywhere a new tool to search multiple government science library collections and repositories from a single place.
 
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.
