Canada: Edmonton City Archives Go Virtual

From The Edmonton Journal:

The City of Edmonton Archives is going virtual with its first online exhibit profiling Edmonton author, artist and archive-advocate Ella May Walker.


The city’s move online is intended to give patrons faster access to the archives and to provide a narrative to the stories of Edmontonians that raw records couldn’t tell by themselves, Ivany says.

“It’s a fun way for people to access information about Edmonton’s history,” she says. “The material is available for them whenever they want it.”

The interactive features are expected to be permanent fixtures on the archives’ site. An online home means new content can be added to the exhibits as the city and its stories move forward.
