Another $80,000 for Whitby Library Archives to Digitize Historical Images

This is great news for Brian Winter (archivist), Ian Ross (Library CEO), Sarah Ferenz (digitization technician) and Whitby Library & Archives users. These digitized images will be added to the 'Our Ontario' database/website where there are already 3455 images added by Whitby under the first donation. "It really adds a dimension to the archive that was never there before by making all these pictures available to so many more people and it never would have without this funding," said Whitby archivist Brian Winter. The hope is to add the archive's remaining historical photos (about 3000) to the online digital database of photos. Like the first, this donation was anonymous.
