Just want to let you know that all titles available from the EBSCOhost eBook Academic Collection are now loaded into our Library catalogue (http://library.twu.ca/ and this collection is current up to the end of Oct 31, 2013. 127,000 full-text ebooks from this EBSCOhost collection are now available to TWU Library patrons (we have added 48,000 since Jan, 2013. 80,000+ in the 2nd half of 2012).
Each of these full-text ebooks are now searchable/accessible from the Library's online catalogue, as well as from the main Ebscohost database search pages (see link above). To browse the entire collection in our Library catalogue just enter the search phrase “ebook academic collection” in the Author field (not really recommended due to sheer numbers!).
We do not own these titles which are considered ‘rental’ just like ejournals from the subscribed journal databases. But this subscription gives us an affordable way to provide a large collection of ebooks to faculty, staff and students.

The Library of Parliament, in collaboration with Canadiana.org, is launching its
Historical Debates of the Parliament of Canada digital portal.
The portal provides free public access to digital versions of the historical debates
of the Parliament of Canada in both official languages. It includes all published
debates of both the Senate and the House of Commons from Parliament 1,
Session 1* until coverage on parl.gc.ca begins.**
This initiative significantly increases access to Parliament’s documentary history
and heritage. The portal can be browsed by Chamber, Parliament, Session, and
volume, and is full-text searchable with a number of search filters available.
The digital page images were produced by Library and Archives Canada, and
the portal developed in collaboration with Canadiana.org, a membership alliance
dedicated to building Canada’s digital preservation infrastructure and providing
wide-ranging access to Canadian documentary heritage.
