Digitization and translation funding announced for collection at UVic

Congratulations to our colleagues at the University of Victoria Archives-  a gift of $26,000 from the Victoria Foundation has been announced to digitize and translate the archives of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association.  Since many of the documents in this archival collection are in traditional Chinese script, this funding will make the material more accesible to scholars and students who cannot read the script.

Open J-Gate (an aggregator of “free” journals) has shifted their URL from a .org to a .com, it seems. What does that mean? Currently, all links to titles in this database from the ejournal A-Z list are broken. A refresh overnight should fix this.

If you can’t wait –and why should you?– go to http://www.openj-gate.com and browse for your journal title.

Gung hay fat choy!

Happy Chinese New Year! By way of celebration, we’re going to try to make our way through the Chinese zodiac using photographs from the Chung Collection. (Now updated to include ox and tiger!)

*Update 2 (Feb. 8th)*

*A trial is born! From now till Feb. 28th, try out U.S. Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1994.

Due to a change in provider (the collection has moved from LexisNexis to ProQuest), a new agreement for this collection needs to be negotiated. We are working on it.

In the meanwhile, 1789-1954 are also available in opaque microform, AW 10 U48 Koerner Library Microforms.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Add LexisNexis Statistical Insight to this problem, too. Library Has the following in print holdings:

*UPDATE* They found their snow shovels. IEEE back online.*

IEEE reports its Xplore Digital Library is down due to storms on the East Coast. You can follow their tweets as they try to get back online at:


…or look for print copies of what you need in the Library Catalogue.
