UBC Library contributes to BC Books Online project

UBC Library is a participant of BC Books Online, a project that features a digital collection of non-fiction books about the province of B.C.  The collection includes books on history, natural history, Aboriginal culture, arts and culture, political commentary, the environment and other contemporary issues.

In 2007, a consortium of library organizations and publishers initiated the project, which supports equitable access to all British Columbians using Internet technologies and collaboration between libraries and the public sector.

BC Books Online marks the first-ever collaboration between publishers and libraries with the goal of delivering digital content throughout the province.
