Digitized Images: University of British Columbia Digitization Centre Joins The Commons (Flickr)

From the Flickr Blog:

The University of British Columbia Library’s Digitization Centre develops and preserves digital collections of photographs, rare books, maps, letters, newspapers, and other items. The majority of these items are drawn from collections held at UBC, but the center also digitizes and makes available materials held at and in partnership with other institutions and community groups. Collectively they document a diverse range of people and places, activities and events, and serve as a resource for students, historians, genealogists, and other researchers.
