Canadian government information can be difficult to find. Here are some tips.

Anyone interested in cold-water species will probably find the WAVES catalog useful.

WAVES http://inter01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/

The WAVES database is the online catalog of the libraries of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. The Canadians have done a lot of work digitizing their publications, and you can find online versions of most Canadian manuscript reports and Canadian technical reports that have been published in the last few years. They've re-designed their web pages, and you can see at a glance if the publication you want is available online. The "advanced" search is particularly useful, because you can specify author, series, date as well as keywords.

This is also a very useful resource for translations. The issues in the series "Canadian translation of fisheries and aquatic sciences" are listed, and, although almost none of them are available online, this is a most valuable resource for finding translations of Russian, Japanese and other publications. The Guin Library has many, but not all, issues in this series. Try variant spellings for author names, especially for the Russians.

There will be a 10-15 minute outage of the library catalog at 7pm tonight, Friday, 3/18.

OSU undergraduates, graduate students and faculty, help us make your research easier! We need some volunteers willing to spend about 45 minutes testing the OSU Libraries' website and telling us what you think. We will ask you to use the website to accomplish several tasks and then answer a few questions. No prior use of the library or its website is needed.

Participants will receive a $10 OSU Bookstore gift certificate.

Your participation is confidential. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this study.

To volunteer, please call or email Stefanie Buck, stefanie.buck@oregonstate.edu or 541-737-7273.

Spring term 2010 OSU Libraries began acquiring streaming videos for use by faculty and students. Streaming videos can be viewed anywhere an OSU patron can access the Web. The library has purchased a small selection of streaming videos from Films for Humanities and Sciences, an educational video company. These include Cappuccino Trail: The Global Economy in a Cup, Explaining Globalization, Get 1.1 Billion's Attention: Growing Consumerism in India, and Sports Shoe Wars: Battle of the Giants in China. Look for these and future purchases on the What's New - Multimedia Collection page.
