OCUL and the University of Toronto Libraries are pleased to announce that the U of T geospatial data catalogue is now searchable in Scholars GeoPortal. The collections are searched by default for recognized U of T users, and can be optionally searched by other OCUL users. While it is not possible to preview U of T data collections in the GeoPortal map view at this time, the search results offer an "Access Resource" button which points users directly to the U of T geospatial data catalogue for data access (available to recognized U of T users only).

This is an important step in bringing both shared and local geospatial data resources together in one place for University of Toronto users. The project serves as a model for what can be accomplished throughout OCUL to improve awareness of the full range of available geospatial data resources available to users.
