City of Winnipeg Archives – Winnipeg in Focus

January 13, 2014

Winnipeg in FOCUS is the product of a partnership between the City of Winnipeg Archives, Red River College, and the City of Winnipeg’s Corporate IT Department. In January, 2014, a team of Red River College students in the Business Information Technology Industry Project Course, began developing an application to improve access to the rich collection of photographs held by the Archives. Functional requirements and content were provided by the Archives. Technical mentorship and design services were provided by Corporate IT.

Winnipeg in FOCUS is a web-based application that allows users to search and view photographs and graphic materials held by the City of Winnipeg Archives. At the moment, Winnipeg in FOCUS includes only a fraction of the thousands of images in our holdings. Content will be added as resources allow.
