A collection of historical and genalogical records
The Canadiana Discovery Portal is a free service that enables users to search across the valuable and diverse digital collections of Canada’s libraries, museums and archives. It provides Canadians (and me!) with access to a wealth of digital material such as books, journals, newspapers, government documents, photographs, maps, etc.
My experience of using it is that calling up search terms results in a large number of responses which have to sieved through to find what I was looking for. No doubt this will be refined as the service moves beyond Beta.
My search for Dr James Douglas seemed to pull up every Dr, James and Douglas. Searching for "Dr James Douglas" narrowed the results, where I found what I was looking for.
