A new year brings with it new projects, and we’re excited to spotlight an upcoming digitization project with valuable local content.
Kinesis is an important local women’s newspaper that was published by the Vancouver Status of Women organization from 1974 to 2001 (the early iteration of the publication is entitled Vancouver Status of Women). It is the only Canadian national newspaper focusing on women and women’s issues, and it is an invaluable and well-referenced resource for researchers in the area of gender, sexuality and social justice.
The project will digitize all 330 issues of the newspaper and make them freely available online in our digital collections. We hope to have the publication up by summer … stay tuned for the launch announcement.
The material is held in the UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections division at HQ1101.V24 N49.
