At Fort Vancouver NHS, park staff preserve and protect more than two million historic objects in the park's museum collection, including the world's largest collection of archaeologically recovered Hudson's Bay Company artifacts and objects from several other national park sites.

The park's Fall 2013 Public History Field School produced an enhanced, digital publication titled The McLoughlin Family Collection: A Look Inside the Fort Vancouver Museum Collection that takes advantage of digital enhancements available via the iBooks platform to better highlight and provide access to amazing public objects from the McLoughlin family while not compromising their safety.

 

An enhanced version of the book--with video, external links, enhanced images, and interactive historic artwork--is available as a free download for those with access to iBooks, through a desktop or laptop computer, an iPad, or an iPhone. Search iTunes for McLoughlin Family Collection or click here to access the book in the iBooks Store.
