Let it SHO: Christmas on Saskatchewan History Online

The University Library, University of Saskatchewan has partnered with the PLLO (Provincial Library & Literacy Office) from the Ministry of Education to create Saskatchewan History Online (SHO).  This project is nearing its completion at the end of 2015; it was a 3-year project funded by the PLLO and two library employees, Craig Harkema and myself Joel Salt, were seconded to work on it.

The project partners with memory institutions (or GLAMS – Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) as well as a few other institution types from around the province.  Co-ordinating with them, SHO has sent students out to help organize, scan, and upload documents to the saskhistoryonline.ca to be preserved and searchable for the citizens of Saskatchewan.

The website is about to get a facelift for the new year, but first enjoy some Christmas objects in the collection from the U of S: and there are plenty more from other institutions around the province!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
