Selective Digitizing Within Records Gathered by the Project

Many of the pdf files in the Landscapes collections are selected portions of the document from the source institution (for example a document of the minutes of a meeting will contain the minutes of the full meeting on the original source institution's site, but only the pages relevant to the project on this project's site. This is described in the Immediate Source of Acquisition section of the page for the document. If you are in any doubt about the completeness of the pdf file on the project site, please confirm against the document in the source institution. Reference information is provided on each record's page on our site, often with additional information in the metadata (viewable by clicking on the metadata link).

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
