ARCHIVE MATTERS

January 6, 2017

Check out our new blog feature by Angie Bain, Lower Nicola Indian Band: https://www.bcstudies.com/?q=blog/archive-matters-begin

Most research starts with a simple question, but as we learn more about archival collections and the communities and people that make use of them, our research can take us on unexpected journeys with unexpected results.  Just as I would have never thought to look for maps important to my community at an archives like the APS, each question that other communities ask may bring them far from home. To begin our journey together with this blog Archive Matters I have shared my story.  My goal moving forward with this blog is simple.  With the help of other researchers, archivists, community knowledge holders and interested parties I want to help other communities find documents that will make a difference to their own work.  Let us see where this journey takes us next.
