The Victoria Times Colonist recently published an article on the Colonial Despatches project, which involved the digitization of letters between Vancouver Island and the Colonial Office in London.

This project was supported by the B.C. History Digitization Program, an initiative launched by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006.

The article also pays tribute to Ike Barber and his contributions to digitization efforts in B.C.
