Our Ontario

20 08 2009

I just thought I would let readers know about Our Ontario, which is a collaborative project delivering integrated access to digital collections of libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, galleries, and others. Basically, the website acts as a clearinghouse or portal for information that has already been put online by libraries and other cultural institutions in Ontario. The focus is on Ontario’s history and heritage.  These resources include government documents, such as the handwritten journal of Upper Canada’s first parliament to digitized newspapers.

The project is still in the early stages, but looks sounds very promising.
