A World of Research Resources Just a Click Away -- The Canadian Perspective

How can we accelerate learning and knowledge creation in an increasingly collabourative global environment? How do we leverage existing online resources and tools to enhance their value? Is it possible to easily access a world of research resources? The answer to these questions is yes, through the development of reciprocal trust relationships that are the foundation of access federations. In Canada, the Canadian Access Federation is growing the community of institutions and service providers delivering access to campus wireless networks and web-based resources to today’s mobile, multi-device student, faculty, and researcher populations. Delivery of Canadian Access Federation services is currently being transitioned to CANARIE, Canada’s Advanced Research and Innovation Network.
