Archibald Lampman, 1861-1899
Featured: Discovering Canada's Early Poets
Archibald Lampman in Man: A Canadian Home Magazine
Anyone familiar with Canada's finest nineteenth-century poet, Archibald Lampman, well knows that Lampman's father-in-law, Edward Playter, was a Toronto doctor who initiated a series of health journals entitled Man (1885), The Dominion Sanitary Journal (1883-85), and The Canada Health Journal (1870). Until it was filmed by Canadiana, Man was known to most Lampman scholars merely as the periodical that hosted a poem and a story by the Ottawa poet a few years before the appearance of Among the Millet in 1888. As such, it was a “must-see” periodical for my own research on Lampman and his fellow Confederation poets that came to its ultimate fruition in 2004 with the publication of The Confederation Group of Canadian Poets, 1880-1897.

Out of the Trenches : A Linked Open Data Project
This collaborative pilot project from the Pan-Canadian Documentary Heritage Network uses First World War records from Canada's major memory institutions to illustrate the power of linked open data and the semantic web. Instead of searching for one-on-one “hits”, a documentary database is set up to explore the relationships between records; in other words, to tell their stories.
Early Canadiana Online 2012 progress report
To date, roughly 357,000 new Early Canadiana Online pages have appeared in 2012, with the lion’s share falling in our Early Canadian Periodicals collection. Some 40 monographs comprising 7,000 pages also entered the database.At Canadiana.org a collection is never complete as we constantly seek missing issues or titles. Our search in 2012 has yielded the addition of three issues (1795, 1796, and 1800) to Statutes of Her Majesty's province of Upper Canada in Early Official Publications.
