Q

Help finding a source used in the past

I am looking for a link to an on-line resource that has since been removed from the National Manager's Community website. I accessed this document last summer, and when I revisited my references prior to submitting my project, I have found I cannot access it anymore (the web link times out).

Chartier, B. (2002). Tools for leadership and learning: Building a learning company (3rd ed.). Retrieved from http://managers-gestionnaires.gc.ca/documents/toolkit_e.pdf

I have not been able to find the source through alternate sites. I have actually gone so far as to reach out to the author on his website, the National Manager's Community on their Facebook page, as well as the CSPS Library (Strategic Direction and Service Excellence Branch for the Canada School of Public Service) and the Departmental Library for Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.

I have found the resource on Scribd, but I am not sure if I can use this as a source when the whole document is not available without a paid subscription:
Thank-you for your help!

Answer

There is a fabulous tool called the Wayback machine created by the non-profit Internet Archive that is perfect for tackling the issue of disappeared documents.

I was able to find your document through their site here.
