UBC Library’s British Columbia Historical Newspapers Project, which features digitized versions of 24 newspapers from around the province, has received some great media coverage.
Articles have appeared in the Globe and Mail, the Nelson Star, Metro Vancouver (see page 28), the Cranbrook Daily Townsman and Moncton’s Times & Transcript. A mention of the project is featured in this CBC News article.
CBC Radio also interviewed Allan Bell, Director of Library Digital Initiatives, for two programs – Radio West and On the Coast. At the end of December 2011, CBC’s Daybreak South radio program featured a reading of material taken from a January 3, 1919 issue of the Grand Forks Sun.
