Digitising the Collection (8 min video)

Interest in Charlotte Mason continues, as is evidenced by the books, dissertations and articles being published (see below).  Schools are being designed in the US and UK which apply Mason’s ideas in the twenty-first century. Teachers who follow the Ontario Curriculum and home educators across North America are weaving Mason’s ideas into their educational practice. The Charlotte Mason Digital Collection attracts a growing number of visitors every month as well as a steady flow of enquiries from all over North America and the UK. It plays an important role in this emerging area of scholarship and educational practice.  Most of the following publications are available in the library at Redeemer University College, or online.  Some are on our subscription databases, which are freely available to all while visiting our campus. Off-campus access is available to current Redeemer students and faculty via the Redeemer network password.
