Summary: Searching oURspace 2010,March 18
Like our University Archives and Special Collections, the oURspace repository preserves the
cultural and academic heritage of the University of Regina; but in digital format. oURspace
contains newsletters, research reports, presentations, and more. In addition, our repository site
is a gateway to the digital repositories of other Universities. These documents include full-text
theses and dissertations, interviews, newsletters, and journal articles.
The documents contained in the repository are accessible through any search engine such as
Google or Yahoo as well as through the Archer Library Web site. This Guide is intended to
introduce you to searching both oURspace and other digital repositories using our web site as
the access point. We'll look at two approaches to searching oURspace and one example of
searching another repository search engine for academic open access web resources. You may
want to do each step in this pathfinder on a computer. You'll learn a lot more that way than you
will by just reading it! We think you'll find it time well spent and we hope you'll visit the digital
repository often since more documents are being added daily!
To begin, you need to access oURspace. Go to the Library Home page and click on
oURspace: Institutional Repository link.
