Library Services for Members of the Canadian Society for Circumpolar Health

The University of Manitoba’s Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library has been providing library services to health researchers and community partners in the Canadian North since 2006. As a partner of the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Team in Circumpolar Health, the library would like to extend access to these services to CSCH members until the end of CIHR funding (March 31, 2011). These services include:

  • Literature search services

    Librarians can provide expert search services to identify academic, community-based, professional, and evidence-based publications on research topics of your choice. We will search many commercial databases to provide the literature you need.

  • Document delivery services

    This service can provide CSCH members with access to journal articles, government reports, book chapters and web-based resources at no cost to CSCH members. In most cases, copies of publications are retrieved or made for researchers, making it a great, easy-to-use service.

  • Consultation & training

    Researchers are welcome to contact, Aboriginal Health Librarian, Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library to discuss best practices for information retrieval in Aboriginal, Inuit or Arctic Health. Our librarians can also set up Table of Contents services to assist CSCH members to keep up with the latest research.

All library services for CSCH members are funded through the CIHR Team grant and are provide at no cost to members.
