Four Port Perry area newspaper mastheads overlapping

Our Summer Quarterly newsletter highlights some exciting new collections as well as our recent activities and upcoming events including:

A recent digitization project of newspaper collections thanks to the perseverance of the Lake Scugog Historical Society of Port Perry, Ontario, bringing four new titles online:

Ontario Observer (1857-1873)
Port Perry Standard (1867-1868)
North Ontario Observer (1873-1919)
Port Perry Star (1907-1933)

More work has been done to enhance the Ontario Scrapbook Hansard, the earliest reportage from the Ontario Legislature captured in clippings, now full text searchable with enhanced metadata for easier linking and browsing.

The first person accounts of the Ukranian famine of 1933-34 are captured in the Maniak Collection, a recent and growing addition to the Holodomor Digital Collections.

June is Indigenous History Month and OurDigitalWorld is taking steps to update the VITA Digital Toolkit and support our users to decolonize their collection descriptions.
