About Us

About the Nation Online Archives Project:

Before we embarked on this digitization project, content from the Nation published between 1993 and 2008 was preserved only in the printed pages of our back issues, and it turns out that not all of our readers kept a copy of every single issue ever published. That’s okay. We did.

Getting the words off those old, yellowing pages and on to the internet was a bit of an undertaking. First, the magazines were scanned and processed using text-reading computer software (OCR). Special thanks to Canadiana for their help with that.

Then, a team of seven regular humans looked through every single one of the 5000+ articles looking for typos left behind by the computer. We might have missed a couple.

Find a problem? Our project archivist wants to hear about it:
