Laurentian offers digital library to distance students

October 23, 2007

Laurentian University's JN Desmarais Library is the first in Ontario to offer electronic delivery of single copies of articles and book chapters.  Requested materials are emailed to students and faculty at their library loan account.  The program follows the guidelines set by the Canadian Copyright Act, and the software was configured by the library systems librarian.  Laurentian has a significant distance education program whose students will benefit greatly from the new initiative.
