Delivers comprehensive periodical and digital media content for Canadian schools of all sizes
eLibrary Canada Curriculum Edition delivers one of the largest collections of periodical and digital media content designed specifically for Canadian K-12 schools and libraries — including The Globe and Mail.
Powered by our MediaSeek® knowledge base of educational standards, eLibrary Canada CE connects educators and students to the best online resources to supplement instruction and research.
Students find the answers they need from more than 2,500 full-text magazines, newspapers, reference books, and transcripts—plus more than 7 million photographs, infographics, maps, educator-approved websites from Homework Central®, and audio/video clips.
Editor-created and maintained Research Topic pages appear for the most commonly searched queries. Research Topics highlight text and multimedia documents from eLibrary to provide context around an issue, event or person, saving users time in their research process.
Additional content and features help to create a powerful curriculum support tool for English Language Arts, Social Studies, and more:
- ProQuest® Learning: Literature offers a comprehensive integrated literary reference resource for original full-text works, author biographies, literary criticism, and more.
- History Study Center™ delivers thousands of primary and secondary sources covering ancient to modern U.S. and world history.
Users can sort their search results by relevance, date, file size, Lexile or reading level, publication, and source, while librarians and educators can find content that's directly linked to provincial and IB teaching standards.
"Canadian documents only" and "French Language only" search options are available from the Quick Search screen.
The one-of-a-kind BookCart functionality allows librarians and educators to build persistent links to pre-selected content, creating reading lists, subject and topic pages, standards-linked lessons and activities, community interest pages, and even pre- or post-assessments.
Timeline tools, slideshow-makers, a citation generator and personalization features promote mash-ups and collaboration; and help strengthen 21st-century information skills.
