New Product Announcement-->Canadian Health and Public Policy ebrary collections

To accommodate the new public policy and health research collections we have changed the catalogue records for ebrary a bit. The new links are listed below.

Many thanks to Bib Services for all their help in setting up the links and testing the various options. marc records are on their way, so a big thanks to BibService and ITS for their work on these as well.

When setting up links in your subject pages, be cautious about just linking to the public policy or health sections, remember that a link to the entire ebrary collection will mean that users will be able to pull a much greater range of material. Do some experimenting before deciding which links to use.

1. Ebrary [new record]

This takes you to an overall link that searches across all the ebrary collections (except music scores).

2. Canadian public policy collection [new record]

This is a collection of monograph publications from Canadian public policy institutes, government agencies, advocacy groups, think-tanks, university research centres and other public interest groups. The organizations included in this collection represent the leading edge of primary research and opinion in all areas of Canadian public policy. Their publications are vital to the understanding of developing issues in every arena of Canadian public life.

3. Canadian health research collection [new record]

This is a collection of monograph publications from Canadian research institutes, government agencies and university centres working in the area of health and medical research. The organizations included in this collection are very active publishers of primary research in the field. The publications included are both general policy documents as well as those of a specialized technical nature.
