Early Canadiana is a series of collections published by Canadiana, an alliance of scholars and representatives of major memory institutions from across Canada.

It is available in two formats, on microfiche and online, and each version includes some titles not covered in the other format. Individual titles in the microfiche collections all have bibliographic records added to URSUS, Fogler Library’s online catalog, making them accessible through author, title, key-word, and subject searches. Titles in the microfiche collections are also available to scholars outside the University of Maine through interlibrary loan. The online version, Early Canadiana Online, is included in Fogler Library's database listings, and its contents are fully searchable. Scholars from ouside the university may access the online collection by coming to Fogler Library and using the computers in the Information Commons.
