What Our Customers Say

The University of Alberta Libraries is one of the largest academic library systems in North America, and we support programs in all areas of the Physical and Natural Sciences and Engineering, as well as multiple programs in the Health and Agricultural Sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of the Symposium Series makes it a valuable resource for students and faculty in all of these programs. We also have users at three satellite campuses who can now access this material much more easily. ”
