Overview

Microlog is the clearinghouse for Canadian research and report literature in all subject disciplines. This collection covers English and French publications from federal, provincial, and municipal government agencies and departments. It includes research, scientific, technical and annual reports, policy papers and statistical materials.

Documents indexed in the Canadian Research Index are available on microfiche through various Microlog subscription plans ranging from the complete collection to subsets by level of government (jurisdiction), geographic area, subject, or special collections.

Microlog microfiche collections are used by hundreds of libraries as a cost effective and convenient means of providing archival research information.
