About

PastForward is a public history endeavor of the Winnipeg Public Library, with participation from community partners and private donors.

Mission:

With PastForward, we aim to create a space to preserve and present digital information relevant to the public history of Winnipeg and the surrounding region. Through the collection, digitization, and interactive display of these resources, we aim to provide materials for research, story-building, and the contribution to a rich dialogue about our community. By engaging diverse participation in building a public domain collection, we are seeking to enrich the content, and the community.

Objectives:

· To provide a digital repository to house collections of digitized or born-digital materials from the Winnipeg Public Libraries collections pertinent to local history

· To enhance research and community engagement by providing rich, collaborative access to public history information for Winnipeg and the surrounding region

· To create opportunities for diverse members of the public to contribute objects and information relevant to the public history of our community

· To actively seek out digital collections that would benefit from increased visibility and contribute to knowledge about Winnipeg and the region’s history
