According to the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, a yaffle is defined as “an armful (of dried and salted cod-fish, kindling, etc.); a load.” Memorial’s Yaffle (yaffle.ca) is a sophisticated online resource that allows users to find an expert, query research being done by the university in their geographic region, and even suggest research ideas. Compiled by the university’s Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development, Yaffle is a search engine of Memorial’s expertise and community development resources. Yaffle enables users, such as individuals, community groups, and governments, to search for expertise in a variety of fields. It contains lay summaries on various projects being carried out by the university, everything from marine transportation options for the Strait of Belle Isle to financial sustainability plans for not-for-profit provincial museums.
