17th-18th century Burney Collection newspapers

UNB Libraries is delighted we now have access to the 17th-18th century Burney Collection newspapers!

The newspapers, pamphlets, and books gathered by the Reverend Charles Burney (1757-1817) represent the largest and most comprehensive collection of early English news media. The present digital collection, that helps chart the development of the concept of ‘news’ and ‘newspapers’ and the “free press”, totals almost 1 million pages and contains approximately 1,270 titles. Many of the Burney newspapers are well known, but many pamphlets and broadsides also included have remained largely hidden. These treasures can now be searched, browsed and discovered again within Gale Digital Collections.

Women’s History: Gerritsen Collection of Aletta H. Jacobs

UNB Libraries is excited to announce our new e-resource Gerritsen Collection of Aletta H. Jacobs!

This database is the definitive cross-cultural resource for information on women’s history. It spans more than four centuries and 15 languages and includes over two million pages in full image. Users can trace the evolution of feminism within a single country, as well as the impact of that country’s feminist movement on other countries and their movements. The Gerritsen Collection also provides immediate access to many primary sources from around the world that were previously available only in a limited number of rare book rooms.

Fair Dealing Week

Join Jeannie Bail and Joshua Dickison in a discussion about the current state of Fair Dealing in the context of the Canadian Copyright Act Review. Sharing small portions of work for educational purposes has been added to the acceptable uses within the Canadian Copyright legislation, this right is now being debated by the publishing community and there is a potential that education could be removed from the language.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 28th, in the Milham Room (#100) at the Harriet Irving Library, 12:00 – 1:00pm with your questions and concerns for a brown bag discussion over lunch.
