Sources specializes in collecting, indexing and disseminating information to help journalists, editors and researchers quickly reach articulate experts and spokespersons who can provide background information and comment on a wide range of topics. Publications and services include Sources, SOURCES SELECT® Resources, Media Names & Numbers, The Sources HotLink, and The Sources Calendar.

The aims and objectives of Sources are:
1. To improve the public's understanding of the widest possible range of subjects.
2. To accomplish this primarily by providing, especially to the largest and best list of Canadian newsmedia personnel, the user-friendliest access to the widest possible range of sources on the maximum number of subjects.
3. To encourage and assist the maximum number and diversity of Canadian organizations and individuals to effectively share their expertise and voice their views to and through the media, and in other ways.
4. To educate these organizations and individuals that communication must be open, persuasive and repetitive to be as effective as possible.

The Sources website is built around a controlled-vocabulary subject index comprising more than 10,000 topics. This subject index is underpinned by an "Intelligent Search" system which helps reporters focus their searches by suggesting additional subjects related to their search terms.
Each topic reference links in turn to experts and spokespersons on that topic, with profiles describing their expertise and where relevant their approach to the issue, along with their phone numbers and other contact information. Sources includes listings for universities and research institutes, non-profit associations and NGOs, government and public sector bodies, businesses, and individuals including academics, public speakers and consultants.
The subject index and the search menus are being translated into French, Spanish and German to make Sources a more international resource.
