ECON 321 - Economic History of Victoria BC

Resources for Economic History, with a local focus!

This guide is designed to help you with coursework for ECON 321 - The Economic History of Canada.  I've listed here my favourite sources and research tools to help you, but please note: these are best, and most useful, when used in combination.  Use sources to verify and augment other sources, so that you can build as complete a story as possible.  I've listed general sources about Victoria, British Columbia, without worrying about each student's individual topic (but contact me if you're struggling with a topic idea).  

Historians use a wide variety of primary and secondary sources. Some of these have been digitized and will be available online, and include keyword searchability and other useful tools.  Others may be found only in print or microfilmed sources, and you'll need to use the accompanying indexes and your own brain to use these effectively.  

For more information on discovering and using primary sources, please see the Primary Sources subject guide

If you are having difficulty with any stage of your research, email me your questions or to make an appointment to meet.  I'm happy to help!
