GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources) is a new, authoritative online resource that focuses on the academic study of sustainability and the environment.

bnaThe Library has added three Bureau of National Affairs online resources to it’s collection:

Environment Reporter : “This multi-part [U.S. focused] environmental resource keeps you fully up to date on rapidly changing developments in courts, Congress, federal agencies, state legislatures, industry, and environmental organizations.”

International Environment Reporter : “Know and understand environmental news, laws, regulations, and policies—in all major industrialized and developing nations, as well as international governmental and nongovernmental organizations.”

Environment & Safety Library : “The Library combines powerful, easy-to-use, continuously updated compliance tools with a research collection of [mostly U.S.] federal and state laws, regulations, and documents.” NOTE -we do not have access to grayed-out text.

Recently the University of Toronto Library announced that it would no longer provide free borrowing privileges to graduate students, staff and faculty from other Canadian universities, including UBC.

UBC graduate students, staff or faculty members planning to do research at the University of Toronto Library and requiring direct borrowing privileges while they are in Toronto, should contact Lynne Gamache or Kevin Madill to find out how the UBC Library can assist them in acquiring borrowing privileges.

Please note that the University of Toronto does not permit lending to undergraduates from other institutions whether a fee is paid or not.

elinkicon<=Sadly, this little gem that you know and love, will be OUT OF ORDER on Saturday, January 23 from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (or later). And linking from the Library catalogue to ejournals via Online access or Alternate online access will be down as well for the same period.

But while our OpenURL resolver needs some work, the ejournal A-Z list (click here) will not be affected.

As usual, if you encounter any problems or have questions, email us via our form.
