Residents Can Search Historical Materials via “Points to the Past” Initiative

British Columbia’s 4.6 million residents now have free perpetual access to leading Gale research databases nearly 200 million pages of digital historical content as part of a unique agreement arranged by the University of Victoria Libraries, University of British Columbia Library, and Simon Fraser University Library.

“The Points to the Past initiative expands access to a wealth of historical content for students, faculty, and the general public, enabling us to facilitate life-long learning and to contribute to a better-informed society,” said Jonathan Bengtson, University Librarian for the University of Victoria.

Through their local public, academic, school, or museum library, residents of British Columbia can access all Gale Digital Collections databases including digitized versions of periodicals such as The Economist, The Financial Times and Associated Press content, as well as digitized materials from The Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex. In addition, residents will be able to explore the North American story through Indigenous Peoples: North America, as well as make new discoveries with access to Nineteenth Century Collections Online and Eighteenth Century Collections Online, often considered essential resources for the modern academic researcher. All of the materials will be delivered via Gale’s Artemis: Primary Sources platform, which means the collections are cross-searchable and leverage advanced research features such as graphing and search visualization tools.

“We believe in engaging learners of all kinds and this agreement enables us to offer a wealth of material to residents whether the K-12 student, the university scholar or the local historian and we expect it will lead to new research discoveries and life-long learning,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale.
