Volunteers Make The Difference

Volunteers are providing vital support to the digital archive project, working on various activities at our on site and remotely from locations throughout the province. Over 200 volunteers have contributed to the project over the past two and a half years; this dedicated group is scanning materials from our archive, testing oral history cassette tapes for audio quality, transcribing and translating selected interviews and preparing background research and contextual information to enhance the collection. So far our volunteers have helped to scan over 5,000 historical photographs, and have also drafted over 600 interview transcripts and 135 interview biographies.
