The Douglas Cardinal Collection
In February 2011, The Carleton University Archives and Research Collections (ARC) acquired the Douglas Cardinal Collection. Acquiring a multi-faceted collection such as this allows the Archives and Research Collections to explore web 2.0 in a dynamic way with the aim of opening the door to a new type of researcher.
The Douglas Cardinal Collection consists of 30,000 architectural drawings, 15 architectural models, roughly 100 metres of textual records, photographs and other mixed media. This summer the Carleton Archives and Research Collections, in collaboration with the Carleton University Centre for Public History, has established a web 2.0 presence in order to document the archival processing aspects as well as provide insight on the unique elements of the Cardinal collection for public accessibility.
