Our Team

BC Regional Digitized History is fortunate to have a fantastic team working together to enhance access to Okanagan historical materials. Thanks to the support of a generous private foundation, our team includes graduate and undergraduate assistants. Leadership on the project is provided by UBC Archivists. If you are a student interested in working with BCRDH, please contact Paige Hohmann (paige.hohmann[at]ubc.ca).
