Description:  Originally launched in 2001 as the online edition of Harbour Publishing’s Encyclopedia of British Columbia, KnowBC has grown over the years to become British Columbia’s leading general reference resource. While the Encyclopedia of BC remains the cornerstone of KnowBC, there is much more on the site today including Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest: A Photographic Encyclopedia of Invertebrates, Seaweeds and Selected Fishes, and The Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names. Also added is the full text of Raincoast Chronicles 20: Lilies and Fireweed: Frontier Women of British Columbia. Far West: The Story of British Columbia, a provincial history for younger readers, has been carried over from the earlier version.

Harbour Publishing announces the 2015 updates to its flagship online publication, KnowBC.com. This definitive resource on BC has expanded its repetoire with new units on history, science, environmental studies and more. The new additions join more than 10,000 existing entries and thousands of photos, maps, tables, charts, videos and audio clips. KnowBC is the most comprehensive site for BC information ever compiled.

2015 additions include:

  • New unit on World War One, based on the book From the West Coast to the Western Front: British Columbians and the Great War, by Mark Forsythe and Greg Dickson
  • First-hand materials recounting the local history and culture of the Tofino area, based on the book Tofino and Clayoquot Sound: A History, by Margaret Horsfield and Ian Kennedy
  • Groundbreaking content on the geology,oceanography, history and marine life of the Strait of Georgia, based on the book The Sea Among Us: The Amazing Strait of Georgia, edited by Richard Beamish and Gordon McFarlane
