Online Copy of the Saskatchewan Encyclopedia Now Available

In conjunction with Archives Week, the University of Regina Library is pleased to make available an online archival copy of the Saskatchewan Encyclopedia.

As a service to researchers and as an important historical record of a period of time in Saskatchewan research and publishing, the University of Regina Library, Archives and Special Collections Unit has republished an online archival version of the Encyclopedia. The materials are presented as they were when published. While the Encyclopedia may contain terms, concepts, and interpretations that have evolved since original publication, this is a historical document that reflects the times in which it was created.

Available through oURspace, The Saskatchewan Encyclopedia may be found at: http://esask.uregina.ca.

The Saskatchewan Encyclopedia was originally published as a 1,072 page volume, with a digital version created to mark the centennial of the province in 2005. Both the volume and digital version were coordinated by The Canadian Plains Research Center (CPRC), now the University of Regina Press, with the online version consisting of 2,300 entries that represented the 21 in-depth essays found in the printed hardcover Encyclopedia.
