SFU alumni access to Library Services

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Hello, I am an SFU alumnus (completed my degree in 2005) and I am interested in using services and online databases from SFU's library. I believe that I still have my student card, but I am wondering what else I need or need to do in order to use these services? Also, if I am interested in doing any research from home, I am unclear as to whether I would have access to databases such as JSTOR or Academic Search Premier, or whether I would need to access these databases on campus?
Thank you for your assistance.

Early Canadian Women Writers database

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Regarding the SFU data base for Early Canadian Women Writers, you have incorrectly ascribed the publication date of Martha Banning Thomas' book of verse, "Poems for People," as 1928. The actual publication date, stated on the title-page, is 1925. You may verify this by checking the AMICUS data base for the copy which I sold LAC some 5 years ago.

A: Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The scholars who work on this database have now made the change to the record.

All the best,
