September 27, 2017

Full access to Frontier Life, a digital collection of primary sources from 1650-1920 including material from the Hudson Bay Archives and the Glenbow Archives, is now available to all libraries across Canada thanks to a collaboration between Consortia Canada and Adam Matthew. 

Consortia Canada, Adam Matthew, and 18 leading academic institutions collaborated to open this content to libraries and educational institutions nationwide, including all library types: public, post-secondary, special, archives, museums and K-12 schools. The collaboration unlocks important primary sources to provide the broader community with a comparative view on the various colonial frontiers across the globe..
