We’re passing on these two opportunities – to nominate someone you know for an award, and to help the AAO build a yearly accession register so we can coordinate collections across the province.
Tomorrow, Wednesday February 7th at noon, join us for a free webinar to talk about front-end changes in VITA 6, and how to style your platform.
This is a great year for YCW internships, as they’re funding four times the usual number. If you’ve been waiting to digitize a valuable collection, now is your chance!

The second round of the new Ontario Multicultural Community Capacity Grant encompasses projects scheduled between April 2018 and March 2019. That’s lots of time to digitize heritage materials, launch exhibits, or do programming in your community!

Our collaborators at Library and Archives Canada have published some findings from the completed transcription of Lady Macdonald’s diary. Student Ayla Maud wrote a short biography and summary of some of the major news stories Lady Macdonald witnessed firsthand:

Last month, we let you know that we had gotten an Ontario Multicultural Community Capacity Grant (which we’re abbreviating as the MCC project), funding provided by the Government of Ontario.
Because we’re developing educational resources for Ontario students in conjunction with a wide variety of experts and feedback, we want to document our progress on this project as we go along. You’ll see regular MCC update posts on this blog for the next few months.
