Goodreads: A web pick by Sarah Forgrave

Web interface for goodreads

If you’re like me, you LOVE books. Over the years I have browsed many a bookshop, jotting down names of books on scraps of paper, sent titles via emails to myself or quickly typed the title into a note on my phone. Over time, it became clear that this was not a useful system as often times I’ve found these scraps of paper shredded upon pulling clothes out of the dryer.

Canadiana Héritage

Archive boxes

The Library is one of 47 Canadian university libraries supporting the Héritage project, a 10-year initiative from Canadiana.org and Library and Archives Canada (LAC) to digitize and make accessible online Canadian archival collections. The collection being digitized is intended to chronicle the country and its people from the 1600s to the mid-1900s and will be of great interest to Canadian historians, students and genealogists.
