Sitka Foundation supports digitization of Cowan collection

Decmber 17, 2015—The Sitka Foundation has granted UVic Libraries $30,000 in support of digitizing the Ian McTaggart Cowan Collection (Autumn 2015 Torch  - pages 11 & 31). The online McTaggart Cowan Collection will be a virtual field site where researchers, scientists, teachers, K-12 students, learners of all ages and levels, and citizens of BC can access multiple formats, images, and information about McTaggart Cowan. It's a unique, multi-dimensional digital learning opportunity that will also help extend McTaggart Cowan's life work and research. While this grant enables UVic to begin the digitization work, further funding is being sought to complete this large but important project.
