Add a Collection
The Canadian National Digital Heritage Index (CNDHI) is an index of digitized Canadian heritage collections located at Canadian universities and provincial and territorial libraries. Supported by funding from Library and Archives Canada and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, CNDHI, launched in April 2016, is designed to increase awareness of, and access to digital heritage collections in Canada, to support the academic research enterprise and to facilitate information sharing within the Canadian documentary heritage community.
In anticipation of the 150th Anniversary of Confederation in Canada, CRKN is seeking to update and expand the index and invites the Canadian heritage community to suggest digital heritage collections to include in the index.
CNDHI indexes digitized Canadian heritage collections, defined as follows:
Digitized – The collection must consist of media that have been digitized; users must be able to see and/or hear the media, not simply read about them.
Canadian – A significant proportion of the media in the collection must relate to Canada.
Heritage – The collection must contain media that could reasonably be used as primary sources for the study of Canadian heritage.
Collections – The media must be grouped together into a collection online in such a way that the media are accessible in a relatively systematic manner.
