APICS Newsletters Online

APICS Newsletter 1965

Did you know that from 1990 to 1995, the APICS (now Science Atlantic) newsletter contained a section called “A Lab of Her Own,” which highlighted the accomplishments of various women working in science, engineering, and mathematics in Atlantic Canada?

You can now learn about “A Lab of Her Own” and more interesting facts by viewing old APICS newsletters online! The site is in the early stages of development and we are working to improve user experience, so please let us know if there are any issues.

Here is a message from Dr. Alyre Chiasson (UdeM, retired), a member of the Science Atlantic historical working group project:

In 2023, Science Atlantic established a working group to scan, compile, and categorize the historical documents of the organization. At the 2023 fall meeting of the Board, they were presented with an overview of the project. Among the documents presented was a glimpse of some of the newsletters that bore witness to a very active and vibrant organization during the years in question.
Since that meeting, I have compiled those newsletters into an easily accessible format which you can explore at https://our.sahistory.ca. Simply, click on the “guest access” and you will see “years” of publication on the left as well as a search bar. I wish to underscore that I am hosting this educational service on my own server. Neither the current form, nor the URL are necessarily permanent. Since the documents are in PDF form they are best viewed on a computer or tablet but will certainly work on your phone via your browser. If you do use your phone, be sure to scroll down once you have selected the year of interest. Otherwise, it will appear as if nothing has happened.
If you have any supplementary information about the newsletters, or any newsletters not in the current collection, please feel free to reach out to me at Alyre.Chiasson@umoncton.ca.

Enjoy the newsletters!

Dr. Alyre Chiasson

 

Many thanks to Alyre and the students, Megan Krempa and Amelia St. John, who worked so hard on this project!
