A couple of new resources for the study of British Columbia:
BC Historical Newspapers – Search and view B.C. community newspapers published from 1865 to 1924. The British Columbia Historical Newspapers Collection makes 24 of B.C.’s earliest newspapers freely available in digital format for the first time.
British Columbia Royal and Special Commissions: 1872-1980 - The Legislative Library has digitized over two hundred reports published between 1872 and 1980. There are some gaps in the collection: several reports issued between 1972 and 1942 are reported as missing and some commissions were set-up and terminated before completing their work. The terminated commissions are not listed in this portal. At the moment, there is only browsing capabilities for these documents, but a search interface is in the works. All royal and special commissions reports published after 1980 are available online and can be searched via the online catalogue.
