Crosby Group is pleased to announce we are currently working with The Dundurn Group on the launch of the new Canadian Book Review Annual Online. We are helping to get word out about the CBRAonline’s free trial starting on Monday–details in the press release below. This will be of particular interest both for Reference departments, and as an Acquisitions tool for libraries. Individuals may also want to have personal access.
If you work in a major Canadian library and have an Interlibrary Loan Code from Collections Canada, you already have access!
The code should be 4 characters in length, and is case sensitive, so you will need to input it in all capitals.
If you do not already have access, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your free trial password.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CBRA Live, Online, & Free for 30 Days
TORONTO, September 10, 2009…Dundurn Press is pleased to announce that the Canadian Book Review Annual (CBRA) will roll out live, online on Monday, September 14, 2009.
CBRAonline — the most comprehensive, authoritative database for quality reviews of Canadian-authored titles —is being launched to fill the need for an easily searchable electronic version of the venerable hardcover, Canadian Book Review Annual. Now these important reference annuals with 40,000 past reviews of Canadian-authored titles and over 150 new titles each month are easily accessible online. More than 300 reviewers — all experts in their fields — provide thorough evaluations of Canadian authored books in many different genres including children’s books as well as adult fiction and nonfiction.
For the first time, these reviews will be available to a broad group of users, from professors and scholars to high school students and library patrons.
