About Digital Library North

In Canada’s North, access to information has been limited by the lack of high speed communications infrastructure and relevant digital information sources. With recently announced projects designed to improve connectivity in the Mackenzie Valley and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR), the development of a digital library to support digital content delivery within this region is becoming more practical and pressing.

The objective of the Digital Library North project is to create a digital library infrastructure to address the information needs in Canada’s northern regions.

The Digital Library North team is composed of researchers, collaborators and students at the University of Alberta and Inuvialuit Cultural Resource Centre (ICRC).
