Vancouver’s History Online

A short article in the Globe and Mail profiling work underway by Vancouver Archives staff – digital conservator Sue Bigelow, archives manager Heather Gordon, and city archivist Les Mobbs – exploring intensively to make the city’s history available in all the ways that people use now - digitization, map scanners, blogging, YouTube, Historypin and Flickr for displaying historical photos and videos.

It's good to see this type of initiative, look for news of a partnership initiative of the Ottawa Archives coming soon.
