BC Digital Library Initiative


On April 2014, the BC Government announced the creation of a BC Digital Library (BCDL), formerly the Provincial Digital Library (PDL).  A BCDL is a phased, multi-year project, guided by an over-arching vision of access to the intellectual, historical and cultural record of the Province for the people of British Columbia. A BCDL will provide access to a range of materials that may enrich the intellectual and leisure life of a citizen, showcase the contributions of individuals, organizations and government, and contribute to the economic well-being of the province.

Since the announcement, BC ELN has been collaborating with multi-sector libraries, museums, and archives to envision and build a BC digital library.
