Check out our full list of new collections on the Collections Update page.  

Some highlights from these new resources include:  

Very Short Introductions from Oxford University Press 

The eBooks in Very Short Introductions provide concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects. Written by academic experts, each title in this series offers a basic overview of a specific topic, event, or intellectual concept. They are an excellent starting point when studying, writing an essay, or preparing a classroom presentation. 

Sage Video: Criminology & Criminal Justice Collection 

The Criminology & Criminal Justice Collection from Sage provides instructional videos about the criminal justice system including forensic science, corrections, policing, law enforcement, and theory. Add to your own learning or classroom instruction with a combination of tutorials, demonstrations, and case studies. 

Sage Research Methods Case Studies 

To support curriculum for research methods courses, Sage Research Methods Case Studies offer case studies of actual research projects. These examples show students how research methods are applied in real-world settings. They also apply context to methodological theory and underscore the nuances and practical decisions researchers face when designing their research projects. 


Mintel reports provide access to consumer research, market information, product innovation, and competitive analysis across a variety of consumer markets. Mintel covers topics of particular interest at the University of Guelph such as food and drink, consumer finance, lifestyle, and retail industries.

A wide range of original primary source documents in Research Source: Medieval and Early Modern Studies from the 12th to early 18th centuries provide unique social, cultural, political, scientific, and religious perspectives. Researchers studying medieval and early modern Europe will find illuminated manuscripts, personal papers, diaries and letters, rare books, receipt books, and manuscript sheet music. These documents touch on a variety of topics ranging from first-hand accounts of the plague to gender studies and theatre.
