Yesterday "the Canada Foundation for Innovation announced a $19.1 million investment to support the development of a new infrastructure for social sciences and humanities research. The funds were awarded to the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) — a consortium of Canadian universities that provides its members with desktop access to a wide range of research content through licensing and purchase agreements with Canadian and international publishers."
I think this boils down to a huge national site-licensing program for Canada for publications in the social sciences and humanities - great news for students studying in distance programs at Canadian institutions!
Huh, I don't remember seeing a press release include the standard PDF and a video clip (wmv) before - neat idea.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but did the first researcher in the clip just quote directly from the cover of The Medici Effect?!?
