Protecting our Library Resources!

Dear BMI students,

You may know that the uOttawa library is cancelling its subscription to thousands of journals due to a budget cut. This affects students and professors from all departments and faculties, and research at uOttawa in general. In fact, several journals in the cancellation list are relevant and useful to BMI/CMM (e.g. Microbiology, Endocrinology). A complete list of cancelled journals can be found here:

http://biblio.uottawa.ca/en/about/collections/titles-being-cancelled-2016-09#rgn

The Biology department has started a petition to ask the uOttawa Senate and Board of Governors to protect our library resources. To learn more and sign this petition, please see the link below.
