Subject: [CANMEDLIB] NRC cuts include CISTI

As part of a federal government program review, serious cuts are being planned for NRC.

The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that “the National Research Council is conducting a major review that will eliminate three research groups, downsize another, and cost up to 300 jobs.”

“The Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), the country’s national science library and leading publisher of scientific information would be streamlined into a smaller unit. The Research Press, the publishing arm of CISTI could be turned into a private company.”

Aquatic Commons Statistics Online

FCLA has finished implementing the statistics module for the Eprints software.  Access to statistics are now available at the Usage Statistics (http://irstats.aquacomm.fcla.edu/irstats-aquacomm) link on the Aquatic Commons homepage.  You can view stats for the whole repository, or if interested, for individual items by entering their repository IDs.    For the first two months of 2009, the most downloaded file was
“Microbiological indicators of water quality in submerged karst caves of Wakulla Springs, Florida.”  (ID 760)
Issues of Aquaculture Asia have shown to be of continuing high interest.
