A new open collection of historical BC newspapers has launched! The BC Historical Newspapers collection includes digital archives of the Vancouver Sun (1912-2010), the Times-Colonist (1884-2010) and The Province (1894-2010), and is open to anyone with a computer or mobile device located in BC or the Yukon.

Users have access to nearly 5 million digitized pages – a remarkable trove of content for school assignments, teaching, research, local history, family research, and more. This access was made possible by the library members of the British Columbia Electronic Library Network (BC ELN), the BC Libraries Cooperative, and Focused Education Resources. The papers are part of the ProQuest Historical Newspapers collection, one of the world’s largest digital newspaper archives, now part of Clarivate.
