B.C. digitization project in the Alberni Valley Times

An article on an innovative project that has received funding from the B.C. History Digitization Program (BCHDP) appears in the Alberni Valley Times. The project involves the digitization of thousands of images related to the community growth of Port Alberni, located on Vancouver Island.

The BCHDP was launched by UBC’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006, provides matching funds to help libraries, archives, museums and other organizations around the province digitize an enticing array of material. Nearly $180,000 was awarded to 21 projects in 2011. Altogether, BCHDP funding has totalled more than $820,000 for 98 projects throughout British Columbia.
