Freedom to Read Display in the Abbotsford Library by the Abbotsford campus library to see the vast array of books on display that have been challenged and / or censored over the last 100 years.  From Alice in Wonderland to Animal Farm, and from Harry Potter to the Hunger Games, you'll be surprised at what shocks and offends.  One thing is certain in a good library, there will always be something to offend someone!

For more information on Freedom to Read Week including a selected bibliography of challenged books, please click here.

Astrophysical Data System (ADS) added to Research Databases

The Astrophysical Data System, produced by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory,  is a detailed index to astrophysical research reports and data. ADS provides links to arXiv, publisher's sites and other repositories. Although the database itself is free to search, we have proxied the database so that students/faculty will be able to connect to the licensed scholarly journal articles from publishers such as Springer, Elsevier and Wiley.
The database is useful for astronomy and astrophysics research.
