UBC Digitization Program Brings B.C. History to the World

An innovative University of British Columbia program has provided more than $1 million in funding to help B.C. communities promote their unique histories to audiences around the world, thanks to digitization.

The support will allow users to view photos related to the Japanese-Canadian internment on the West Coast in the 1940s, peruse the pages of historical B.C. newspapers and much more.

Launched by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006, the B.C. History Digitization Program (BCHDP) provides matching grants to support projects that make B.C. heritage freely accessible to the public via the Internet.
