The Wallace B. Chung and Madeline H. Chung Collection, a designated national treasure, has a new virtual home.

The handsome website, found at, highlights the Chung Collection’s three main themes: immigration and settlement, early British Columbia history, and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.

Focus groups consisting of faculty, staff, students and community members provided feedback on the development of a new site for the Chung Collection, which is housed at UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections division.

Highlights include quick search and advanced search functions, a “most viewed items” feature, an appealing re-design and an extensive catalogue of digitized items.

UBC Library invites you to visit the site and delve into one of Canada’s most exceptional historical collections.
