BC Digital Library initiative: Radical collaboration toward community infrastructure for Open Access
MetadataShow full item record
The idea of the BC Digital Library is to provide a community good by “materializing” infrastructure that enables Open Access to knowledge and stories about and by British Columbia and its people.
