Over the past several years, the Alberta Gaming Research Institute Library and the University of Calgary Image Centre have been collaborating on a project to digitize and archive a selection of historical and contemporary gambling-related publications. The project requires that digital copyright permissions be secured before items are digitized and made available online in their entirety through a digital library. The software used to run this digital library is called DSpace and it is hosted at the University of Calgary. As of May 2004, there were more than 239 items included in the collection. It can be accessed from the Institute’s DSpace “community”.
