The Digitized Okanagan History (D.O.H.) collection features copies of unique historical documents from participating memory institutions located throughout British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Created as part of the collaborative Okanagan Region History Digitization Project, D.O.H. includes digitized copies of photographs, documents and published materials and provides a centralized discovery portal to support research and generally enhance access to local resources.
D.O.H. is part of Arca, a collaborative initiative to support the development and implementation of digital repositories at BC post-secondary institutions. Foundational to the creation of the BC Digital Library, Arca is a province-wide network of institutional repositories that:
- provides access to faculty and student research output across multiple post-secondary institutions via a cross-repository search layer
- supports the management of institutional digital assets
- showcases BC as a hub for knowledge creation across Canada and around the world.
