The Latest on Colonial Archives in North America

Representatives of institutions participating in the project "Colonial Archives in North America" convened at the Grande Bibliothèque on September 17. This project, created at the initiative of BAnQ and Harvard University, who will facilitate the enterprise, intends to pool the archive collections of major east coast institutions through digitization. The representatives have reviewed the guidelines defining the objectives and means of the project, as well as various technological models that will make it possible to meet the proposed objectives.
