1.Electronic resources. There was a lot of activity this month. We cancelled 80 Wiley print subscriptions, and added 398 Wiley online titles. JSTOR holdings were updated to reflect the added years and volumes. We added Proquest nursing, totalling 291 titles, and Ovid nursing. 52 new titles were added to Canadian Index. We now have 11,149 online journals.

2. Swets Blackwell. Graham Yates visited.

3. Coutts. Marina Dranitsaris visited. She demonstrated the new system called Solutions, that we can use to go online and check the status of our standing orders (for annuals) and claim online.

4. Gifts. This was a very busy month for donations, with many callers checking out details. We accepted a donation of about 2500 theatre books which are in 013 and ready to be selected. A number of other large donations are expected to arrive next month.
