Digitization project in the Vancouver Sun

A digitization project that is a collaboration between UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections, UBC Archives and the City of Vancouver Archives appears in the Vancouver Sun.

The project is called The Chinese Experience in British Columbia, 1850-1950. It will explore Chinese immigration, work, and social and cultural life in B.C. through the digitization of items from the Chung Collection at UBC (www.library.ubc.ca/chung) and the Yip Sang fonds at the City of Vancouver Archives. Both collections are of national importance.
