History At Your Fingertips
Now available: Our brand new Collections Online website!
The Bulkley Valley Museum is thrilled to announce the launch of our Collections Online website!
To start your discovery of our local heritage, visit http://search.bvmuseum.com/
Our new website is your portal to discover our collection of several thousand historic photographs of Smithers and the surrounding Bulkley Valley, as well as our documentary heritage and artifact catalogues.
Users can share their favourite items to Facebook and Twitter, and generate PDFs or print lists of items they are interested in. Users can also provide direct feedback to the Museum via email on specific photographs and records. We hope to start crowd sourcing more information about some of our photographs, which often picture people whose names have been lost to history.
Our new website is part of the Museum’s ongoing efforts to make its collections more accessible to our local communities, enabling users from anywhere in the Bulkley Valley, or anywhere in the world to learn about our local history.
The BV Museum’s Collections Online portal was made possible through funding from the Government of Canada through the Library and Archives Canada Documentary Heritage Communities Program.
