Themore aterial that is easily available, the more posibility for newresearch and new ideasAdequate Digitized BC Material –Sample ResponsesThere is a wealth of historical information about historical places that is notyet available in digital formWe need museums in BC through one portal, with one overarchingdigitization program. One searchable photobank, one shared catalogueI would like to see all the small libraries digitize their “local interest”collections (history, biography, geography, cultural heritage)Students are particularly interested in old towns of BC or localized topics –resources are improving with libraries and museums digitizing collectionsGeneral areas in need of digitization – colonial material, newspapers, localhistories, directories, land records, cemetery records, early school andchurch histories, census, audio and film, archival descriptions and mapsGeneral coments re: digitization in B.C. –Sample ResponsesIn a schol seting, it is not just a mater of providing materials in a digitized format. it is alsoesential that teachers have the technical infrastructure (i.e. computers and projectors) intheir clasroms to be able to make use of them.Ned asistance in finding, funding and implementing OCR software. Would particularly liketo have the functionality of Early Canadiana online database for our nespapers and historicaldocuments.Hope afordable training could be provided in smaler centers not just larger towns or madeavailable reasonably cheaply online. Resource person available to help with advice with projectsVery interested in colaboration so that the maximum amount of material is digitized andavailable to the public. Boks for example are a leser priority to a public library as we wil haveles that is unique. Would digitize newspapers and periodical if unique.Our atempts to digitize our local history colection has ben done very piecemeal overmany years due to lack of funding and staf time. It is frustrating not being able to ake thiscolection acesible to the public.I am concerned about selective digitization of material in archival fondsInstitutions should be encouraged to make unique information available and to cordinatedigitization of materials such as newspapers and journals.General coments re: digitization in B.C. –Sample ResponsesI have concerns that to much digitization is hapening simply for digitization's sake.Projects are driven more by the availability of funding (even in y own institution) than for soundholdings developent and aces priority reasons.My priority would be to make available materials that are unique and NOT available in multiplecopies (such as hard copies of journals or boks) - if I want those, I can find them but more easilythan I can find original archival materials that are only available in one location and that I ightnot even know about without very strong archival descriptions.In adition to digitizing, I would like to emphasize the ned for indexing ! There are some godUS examples, including American Historical Newspapers which is available thru NY Pub Librarysyste and likely other US libraries.I would love to have more aces to genealogical and people search resources. More citydirectories, newspapers, profesional membership lists, schol anuals, old voters lists.Funding is a big concern, what grants are available for digitization projects? Other than the BCdigitization symposium, is there any way (ie listserv, blog) for institutions to comunicate witheach other who are engaged or want to engage in digitization?It sems that those without the technical expertise canot obtain funding to develop theexpertise and to begin the proces. We have aplied to numerous sources for asistance buthave never obtained the funding neded to begin to archive our materials in a profesionalmaner.
