Small Woodlands Collection


The Small Woodlands Program of BC has established several library collections in the province: a core collection at Malaspina University College in Nanaimo, a collection serving north-central BC at the College of New Caledonia (CNC)  in Prince George, and materials available through the Forrex Forest Research Extension Partnership. Items in these collections are available to all registered patrons of these libraries.  This page provides connections to catalogues so you can search for items, as well as more detailed information on searching and requesting items from CNC.
