A-Z Databases

Find the best library databases for your research.


New / Trial Databases

The following databases are newly acquired or being evaluated for a future subscription.
Access to thousands of National Film Board productions online
Trial is CBC and Radio-Canada’s online subscriber-based streaming service developed expressly for the Canadian educational community.
Trial ends February 8, 2017. Access to over 250,000 documents, including valuable Canadian content such as archival documents from the Glenbow Museum and the Hudson Bay Archive. The Glenbow material ranges from the setting up of the North-West Mounted Police with the Fames F. Macleod Papers to the administration of the colony with the Dewdney Papers. There is extensive coverage of the Riel Rebellion and also many newspaper articles and memoirs about ‘pioneers’ and relations with the First Nations. The Hudson Bay Archive includes fort diaries and census records that show the working of important frontier business ventures, i.e. Fur Trappers in Canada.
The New Oxford Shakespeare Online is "a dynamic, interactive resource, which presents an entirely new consideration of all of Shakespeare's works, edited from the base-texts themselves, and drawing on the latest textual and theatrical scholarship."

Included are The Modern Critical Edition (with modern spelling, now available), the Critical Reference Edition (Original spelling from folio and quarto copy-texts, to be added in March 2017) and the Authorship Companion (to be added soon after).

No sign-in is required to access this trial from on campus. Mount Allison University users may access the trial from off campus using their usual MtA credentials (no additional sign in is required once on the New Oxford Shakespeare Online site).

The trial period ends 31 March 2017.
