About BCHDP Arca hosting

How can we help you?

The Arca Administrative Centre is based out of the BC Electronic Library Network (BC ELN), BC's consortium of post-secondary libraries. Our staff have years of experience helping small organisations participate in the provincial library services we run. We are leveraging this expertise to support small galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) create public access to their digitised content by placing it in Arca, BC's collaborative digital repository.

The Arca Admin Centre can help you:

  • apply for a BCHDP grant to digitise your materials
  • plan your digitisation project
  • organise your digital materials and associated information/metadata for upload into Arca
  • perform the batch upload of your digital materails into the Arca repository
  • customise the display of your collection (within Arca guidelines)
  • publicise your Arca collection

This support is available to BCHDP grant recipients at no cost through to 2025 thanks to a partnership between BC ELN and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC.
