The Jewish Museum & Archives of BC acquires records that document the rich 150 year history of Jewish life in B.C. With over 300 linear metres of textual records, 300,000 photographs and 700 oral history interviews documenting the history of hundreds of local Jewish organizations and close to a thousand Jewish families, the JMABC strives to make our archival holdings accessible for research.
Frank's (German-Canadian) collection is the first large collection acquired by Vancouver Public Library and provides the foundation upon which today's Vancouver Public Library Historic Photograph Collection is built. Frank was active as a photographer between 1910 — 1944. He travelled throughout British Columbia during this period taking photographs of a vast array of subjects thereby providing a detailed record of life in the province.
This catalogue contains the archival descriptions of government and private records that are of enduring value to the province of British Columbia. New information is continually added, including some digital copies of records, giving ever growing access to the archival materials.
BC Library's Open Collections include digital photos, books, newspapers, maps, videos, theses and more. These publicly-accessible collections are constantly growing and reflect the research interests of the UBC community and beyond.
