Reviews

"At present few online resources focus on Canadian subject matter and content with the promise of audio, video, interactive maps, image maps, and global news feeds to enhance the experience. Gale Canada in Context (formerly, Student Resource Centre: Canadian Edition) attempts to bridge that gap and serve those seeking material that cannot presently be found through any one particular database."

“This is useful for examining the Canadian perspective on the world. . . . This dynamic resource is recommended for school and public libraries in Canada or to libraries that serve large populations with Canadian research interests. It provides an engaging way to study Canada with a wide variety of resources including multimedia.”
