lpclib-ejhelp & lib-elinkhelp will be unresponsive till January 4th. when eResources re-opens in its new digs. PLEASE DO email us about any problem, just realize you won’t get a response till we get back.

Yes, we put down our mouses and pick up our mugs at this time of year, so let’s hope access remains “jolly” over the holidays.

And when we do return, it will be to our new penthouse office down the street. All our phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same (we hope!).

So, from a dusty swirl of empty desks and half-packed boxes, Happy Holidays from Irene, Kat & Lorne.


The Data Management Subcommittee of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries has developed Research Data: Unseen Opportunities, a toolkit to raise awareness of the issues of data management on university campuses. The toolkit will provide readers with a general understanding of the current state of research data in Canada and internationally, and offer suggestions to begin addressing the issues involved.

Sections include:

  • The big picture
  • Major benefits of data management, sharing and reuse
  • The current context
  • Gaps in data stewardship in Canada
  • Data management policies in Canada
  • What can be done on campus?

HST_Logo“This collection of specially prepared animated audiovisual presentations with synchronized narration by world leading scientists is keeping researchers informed throughout the world.” -Henry Stewart Talks website

The audio visual presentations are organized into comprehensive series… from “Apoptosis” to “Epigenetics” to “Microarrays” to “Viruses and Viral Diseases” and much more.

Go to Henry Stewart Talks, plug in the headphones and soak it in.

BBIH logo“The Bibliography of British and Irish History provides bibliographic data on historical writing dealing with the British Isles, and with the British Empire and Commonwealth, during all periods for which written documentation is available – from 55BC to the present. It is the successor to the Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History.”

The Bibliography aims to be as comprehensive as is practical for publications since 1900. Data from the London’s Past Online and Irish History Online has been added, and the Scottish Historical Review Trust has been involved as well.

Check out the 53 “Robin Hood, legendary outlaw” entries.

The David Lam Librarians have been recognized by their colleagues in other academic libraries in BC for their Jump-Start Your Research Guide. The guide, created to assist students with the critical thinking process necessary for approaching secondary market research, has won a prize in the ALPS LINK Gold Medal Contest. The contest invites academic librarians to submit learning objects which can be used by librarians at other universities and colleges in BC.  ALPS (Academic Librarians in Public Service) is part of the BC Library Association.

Developed this summer after a discussion about how best to help students apply critical thinking skills to secondary research, the guide has been handed out to undergraduates and graduates in library presentations and at our reference desk. It can save students time by helping them create an effective research strategy and also helps the librarians to understand their research topics more clearly.

There are two versions of the tool; one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. Click here to access the guides  on David Lam Library website.

The David Lam Management Research Library is proud to showcase faculty publications, in a variety of ways:

The following books on sustainable business topics are available at the David Lam Library:
