Experience Profile - Mari Allison

Hi everyone! My name is Mari Allison, and I recently started a graduate co-op with the B.C. Regional Digitized History project. I am currently a dual MLIS and MAS student at the University of British Columbia. I’m very excited to work with this project because I have an interest in community based libraries. In my first few weeks, I’ve had a wonderful time learning more about the Okanagan region, and I can’t wait to visit once it's safe to do so!

New Video Showcasing the BCRDH

Still frame from the BCRDH video

British Columbia Regional Digitized History (B.C.R.D.H) is the evolution of the Digitized Okanagan History (D.O.H.) project, which was conceived of as a unique regional partnership involving the University of British Columbia's Okanagan Campus Library and numerous community memory institutions. D.O.H. was renamed British Columbia Regional Digitized History in February 2020 to reflect the expansion of the project to include a new aggregate collection: Kootenay/Columbia Digitized History.
