Beginning this year, the largest online collection of historical Canadiana has gone open access, allowing anyone to consult its 60 million+ pages of documents for free. This is a very welcome development that will help students, citizen researchers, and professional historians. It also points us in the right direction when it comes to online archives: stable, accessible, free, and managed by not-for-profit entities. I talked about this development with University Affairs.
