Run in With The Law

Apologies for the clickbait title but I wanted your attention to turn to this wonderful resource we’ve been able to add to the Libraries digital collection with the help of the Victoria Police Historical Society. The Victoria Police Department Charge Books collection includes several charge books, a complaint book, and three mugshot books from the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Additions and Alterations

After some discussion, the decision was made to transition this from a personal blog to a departmental blog for the UVic Libraries Digitization Centre. This means more voices will be added, and more content in coming weeks, which means you get more behind-the scenes details of the type of materials we are working with, the equipment we use, and the challenges we face.
