Have you heard the news? There are two new EOS collections in cIRcle!

Two collections, recruited by Kevin Lindstrom, Liaison Librarian for Earth and Ocean Science, include Earth and Ocean Sciences undergraduate honours theses and Environmental Science undergraduate papers and reports. These collections highlight student-driven research, with topics including the impact of commercial shipping noise on killer whales, waste management strategies for Metro Vancouver and gas shale permeability measurements.

You can see more details about these collections in cIRcle by visiting the Earth and Ocean Sciences community in cIRcle.

cIRcle is an Information Repository (or institutional repository) for published and unpublished materials created by the University of British Columbia.

 

Earth sciences researchers can now access and explore more relevant research thanks to cIRcle, UBC’s institutional repository.

cIRcle is the University of British Columbia’s digital repository for research and teaching materials created by the UBC community and its partners. With more than 34,000 items freely accessible to anyone on the web, cIRcle offers continued access for current and future users.

Through its liaison librarians, UBC Library recruits material for cIRcle, such as undergraduate honours theses and research reports. These efforts have paid off, resulting in large communities of research.

Two collections, recruited by Kevin Lindstrom, Liaison Librarian for Earth and Ocean Science, include Earth and Ocean Sciences undergraduate honours theses and Environmental Science undergraduate papers and reports. These collections highlight student-driven research, with topics including the impact of commercial shipping noise on killer whales, waste management strategies for Metro Vancouver and gas shale permeability measurements.

To access to these studies, simply go to the Earth and Ocean Sciences community in cIRcle.

Other items can be deposited into cIRcle, such as preprints and postprints of academic journal articles, departmental publications, technical reports, bulletins, conference proceedings, course notes and other learning materials. For more information on cIRcle visit its website.
