TWUSpace ,the institutional repository of Trinity Western University, will capture the digital assets of the entire university. It will include work by faculty, staff, and students and it will include historical collections. TWUSpace is just getting started--watch for new content to be added!

TWUSpace is part of Arca, a collaborative project of British Columbia post-secondary institutions to provide anytime, anywhere access to research created at BC post-secondary institutions. Arca is a province-wide network of digital repositories that:

  • provides access to faculty and student research output across multiple post-secondary institutions via a cross-repository search layer;
  • supports the management of institutional digital assets;
  • showcases BC as a hub for knowledge creation across Canada and around the world.

Arca is powered by Islandora, a Canadian-developed open-source platform currently in use at over 100 public and private institutions worldwide. This shared platform provides post-secondary institutions with open-access repositories for research, theses, and any other digital assets they wish to make available to the wider community.

Arca is made possible by a partnership between the British Columbia Electronic Library Network (BC ELN) and Charlottetown, PEI-based software firm discoverygarden, supported by a grant from the Ministry of Advanced Education.
