A joint initiative of Canadian Council of Archives (CCA), the Provincial and Territorial Archival Networks, and Library and Archives Canada (LAC). Contains digital exhibits and digitized collections of more than 800 repositories.
The Digital History Reader (DHR) is comprised of two main content areas, each broken out into modules. The European History section, entitled "Modern Europe in a Global Context," explores links between European and world history in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Links connect to European primary historical documents that are transcribed, reproduced in facsimile, or translated.
In addition you will find video or sound files, maps, photographs or other imagery, databases, and other documentation.
The sources cover a broad range of historical happenings (political, economic, social and cultural).
The Herskovits Library's collection includes photographs, maps, posters, videos, books in African languages, archival materials and manuscripts, as well as art objects, ephemeral materials and other artifacts, many of which are digitally accessible.
