Historian of the city, politics, and society

Open Access Canadiana


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.
