Arca: BC's Post Secondary Digital Library

eCollections at Emily Carr is part of Arca: a collaborative initiative to support the development and implementation of digital repositories at BC post-secondary institutions. Foundational to the creation of the proposed Provincial Digital Library, Arca is a province-wide network of institutional repositories that:

  • provides access to faculty and student research output across multiple post-secondary institutions via a cross-repository search layer
  • supports the management of institutional digital assets
  • showcases BC as a hub for knowledge creation across Canada and around the world.

Arca is built on Islandora, a Canadian-developed open-source platform currently in use at over 100 public and private institutions worldwide. This shared platform provides post-secondary institutions with open-access repositories for research, theses, and any other digital assets they wish to make available to the wider community.

eCollections is managed by the Emily Carr University Library in accordance with established guidelines. These guidelines and procedures are subject to change.
