Until 2007, the Childcare Resource and Research Unit maintained a comprehensive collection of print materials on ECEC and related topics. This collection was called the Childcare Information Resource Collection (CIRC), and at last count included more than 21,000 print documents including: books; articles in scholarly journals; Canadian and foreign government documents; reports from organizations and agencies, research institutes and universities; articles in magazines and newsletters from professional organizations; and videotapes and DVDs.
circonline.ca, the searchable online catalogue for CIRC, was created to allow public online access to this specialized collection. Due to budget cutbacks, the print collection is no longer available. However, CRRU has decided to maintain the online catalogue for CIRC. While the catalogue is no longer being updated we believe it remains a valuable research tool, especially for discovering rare and historical documents that might then be located and accessed via other sources.
