All about Research Pro

What is Research Pro?

The Library subscribes to many information databases which contain magazine , academic journal and newspaper articles, and in some cases, encyclopedia articles. These are all reputable articles which have gone through an editorial process and in most cases were published in print as well.

What do these 3 questions have in common?

"How do I build a suspension bridge?", "How many people paid income tax in Ontario last year" and "Can you recommend other authors who write like Meg Cabot?"

These are all questions we've answered through our askON virtual reference service. Quicker than sending an email, you can now ask us a question and we’ll help you with the answer simply by typing in a chat box on our website.

Stumbling around the library

I remember, when attending university for my first degree, going to the library on campus to conduct research and being completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of materials they had there. Needing articles from academic journals for research papers, I would stroll the stacks of bound journals, picking them up randomly to read table of contents and eventually finding something "close enough" to useful. I spent hours of wasted time trolling for information I needed.
