featured project:
BC Books Online

BC Books Online marks the first ever collaboration between publishers and libraries with the objective to deliver digital content to an entire province. There has been considerable interest in our progress from across the country and internationally. The project will undoubtedly serve as a model for similar initiatives in other jurisdictions.
