New Additions to the Electronic Collection

Louise Tousignant, Acquisitions and Bibliographic Services

In 2002-2003, several new publishers joined our voluntary deposit program for electronic publications. Legal deposit does not yet apply to electronic publications, therefore all such acquisitions are made on a voluntary basis on the part of publishers. The new names that now appear on the list of publishers archiving their publications at the Library and Archives of Canada come from government and the commercial sector: publishers from the commercial sector include Édi-Texte, Elder Grove Press, FOCAL, FORREX and the Service des libraries de l’Université de Montréal; new federal government departments include Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the Federal Court of Canada and the Kananaskis Summit.

The following are new items that were added during the past fiscal year:

The final report and any other documents relating to the Commission, including Discussion Papers, have been added to the Electronic Collection.

Literature Review on Learning Through Recreation

Published in PDF format by Canadian Policy Research Networks, this publication is part of CPRN discussion paper series F. Author Caroline Beauvais reviews Canadian scientific literature sources and papers published since 1990 relating to the structured recreational activities of young people between 10 and 15 years of age. This review focuses on two aspects: the effects of leisure activities on the physical and psychosocial development of youth and the identification of factors affecting young people’s participation in structured recreational activities. A bibliography and a list of additional readings add to the richness of this literature review.

The Electronic Collection currently includes more than 9 000 titles and more than 30 000 periodical issues available for consultation.
