Abstract
The idea of the BC Digital Library is to provide a community good by “materializing” infrastructure that enables Open Access to knowledge and stories about and by British Columbia and its people. As an ongoing initiative, this good is devised through collaborative work and contributed resources of publicly-funded and non-profit GLAM organizations that steward content and/or provide related services, and also through persistently adopting strategies and technologies that are collaborative, equitable, sustainable, and “open” in ethic, not just free.
