English abstract

The Online Dictionary of Library and Information Science defines digitization as “the process of converting data to digital format for processing by a computer.” We have all heard about mass digitization projects such as the Google Digitization Project and Project Gutenberg, but local ’boutique’ digitization efforts do not receive as much fanfare. Digitization projects completed in BC showcase the unique culture and history of British Columbia. The BC Digitization Coalition is a new initiative working towards the creation of a province-wide digitization strategy by coordinating information on digitization guides, standards, metadata, and funding, as well as supporting the ongoing development of the West Beyond the West search portal as a window into BC’s unique history. The presenters will also highlight some of the successful projects funded by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre’s BC History Digitization Program.
