Heritage Burnaby

Take a virtual trip to Canada for this excellent example of digital local history. A collaboration between a set of City of Burnaby, British Columbia local government institutions, including the public library, city clerk's office, and archives, Heritage Burnaby "represents all of the community assets, heritage services and historic collections managed by the City of Burnaby." Since Burnaby was first incorporated in 1892, this means that there is a rich collection at the website. The Research menu choice leads to the main search options: by collection, neighbourhood, or project. Searches can be further limited by type of material, such as photographs, moving images, textual records, or physical artifacts. Selecting Search under any of the listed material types provides a list of all the items in that category, which can be a handy way to start exploring what's there. Another great feature is the Atlas, which allows a visitor to map change across the decades in both Burnaby's natural environment and its buildings and landmarks.
