TORONTO (May 11, 2005)
The Anglican Church of Canada today launches a series of online databases to facilitate research on Anglican policies, resolutions and books.
The databases, called "ASK -- Anglicans Seeking Knowledge", are part of the General Synod Library's web page and are, as of today, available to the public without charge at: http://www.anglican.ca/search/databases.htm
The online package consists of five major databases and their accessibility through the internet makes ASK a valuable new resource for the entire Anglican Communion and for researchers world-wide.
The databases include a full text database of General Synod policy resolutions dating back to 1924, a full text database of all resolutions of the Lambeth Conferences (1867-1998) and Anglican Consultative Council meetings (1971-2002), a book catalogue database of more than 4,000 titles and an article database containing more than 32,000 articles. Journals indexed include `The Anglican Journal', `Anglican World', `The Church Times', `Episcopal Life', `MinistryMatters' and `The Tablet' and others.
The Content Server/WebPublisher software (also known as INMAGIC) used to create the online databases allows researchers to search and print material from the various databases using the internet.
The project, which has been four years in development, demonstrates a commitment to corporate transparency and offers an example of mutual information partnership and reciprocity, said Karen Evans, General Synod Librarian.
"We see this project as an example of partnership in mission, and information and communication offering to the wider Anglican Communion", said Ms. Evans

Prologue
The Secretary read a letter from the Editorial Secretary of G.B.R.E. seeking guidance as to the way in which the names of former and present Bishops should be listed in the Year Book. The Bishop of Fredericton spoke on the matter and moved, seconded by the Bishop of Niagara' three Motions which included the various changes suggested.
(1) That the list of consecrators of all retired or deceased Bishops be deleted, leaving only the date of consecration and the diocese of the bishop concerned. Lost.
(2) That the bishops who are consecrators be listed by the number of their order of consecration, instead of by their name. Lost.
(3) That an index be included in the book, giving an alphabetical list of all the bishops of the episcopate together with the number of their order of consecration. A further suggestion would be that the name of diocese would be included after the name of the the bishop, so there would be some possibility of identifying all the bishops of one particular diocese without too much difficulty. Lost.
Text
That the House of Bishops expresses to the Editorial Secretary and the members of the Year Book Committee its appreciation for the improved format and appearance of the Year Book issued for 1960. CARRIED.
