As part of a collaborative agreement, the University of Victoria Libraries, the University of British Columbia Library and Simon Fraser University Library, with the support of the BC Electronic Library Network, have negotiated a unique agreement, on behalf of students, faculty and B.C residents, to provide permanent access to all of the Gale Digital Collections products – nearly 200 million pages of digitized historical content. These resources will enrich learning and research in subject disciplines including Area Studies (Canadian, American, British and World History from 1400-2012), English, Journalism, Political Studies, First Nations Studies, History, Science Technology and Medicine, Women and Gender Studies, Theatre Studies, and History of Banking and Finance.

Students and faculty can access and start using these digital historical archives via the University of Victoria Libraries Research Databases.

The results are in – and it’s official. The University of Victoria Libraries raised $11,314 for the United Way of Greater Victoria!

Last week's 3-day sale in the Michèle Pujol room at the SUB was a bonafide success, beating last year’s grand total of $10K. An important event during the UVic United Way Campaign, the book sale now contributes half of all event donations on campus.

Special thanks to everyone who donated materials and assisted in the operational success of this year's sale.
