Frontier Life is a digital resource designed to enrich teaching and research, examining settlement, existence and interactions at the edge of the Anglophone world from 1650-1920. With a vast array of primary source material previously unavailable in digital form, this resource enables research into the many dynamics of frontier existence and its lasting influence across multiple regions. Primary sources from Canada include archives from the Glenbow Museum and the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives Library, Archives of Manitoba.
Consortia Canada, Adam Matthew and 18 leading academic institutions have
collaborated to open this essential content to libraries and
educational institutions nationwide, including all library types:
public, post-secondary, special, archives, museums and K-12 schools. The
collaboration unlocks important primary sources to provide the broader
community with a comparative view on the various colonial frontiers
across the globe.
