The Ottawa Room: Ottawa on the Internet

Brian Silkoff, the master of the Ottawa Room at the Main Ottawa Public Library, directed my attention to a subsection of the Ottawa Room page on the OPL website. It's buried to the extent that when I visited he was preparing a map to help people find it.

The part of most interest for local history, within the Ottawa on the Internet section, is at: http://biblioottawalibrary.ca/en/main/interest/learn/local/workshop/historical. You can drill down further to for historical information on: Arts & Entertainment; Communities; Economy; Festivals; General; Historical Buildings; Immigration/Settlement; Miscellaneous; People; Religion; Sports & Recreation; Transportation.
