The Arctic Institute of North America, Canada’s first and longest-lived Arctic research institute, is excited to launch ADA: Arctic Discovery & Access!

ADA is a digital educational service that provides access to scientific research publications, research projects derived from license and permit information, K–12 educational resources, data management resources for researchers, virtual exhibits, and the Arctic Institute of North America’s online archives and special collections. 

ADA Highlights

  • 68,000+ publications about the Arctic
  • 18,000+ research projects derived from license and permit information
  • Archival materials including photographs, maps, field journals, film, and oral histories
  • Virtual exhibits showcasing documents and archival materials with educational exploratory material
  • Educational resources for K–12
  • Project portals for ArcticNet, the Northern Contaminants Program, and the Kluane Lake Research Station

ADA expands upon the former ASTIS database which was already well-regarded by Arctic researchers as an

online information resource and publications database for the Government of Canada’s Northern Contaminants

Program and the Beaufort Regional Environmental Assessment, the ArcticNet Network of Centres of Excellence Canada program, and the Canadian International Polar Year program.
