Exploring the Centre for Newfoundland Studies, a podcast with Joan Ritcey

This February, Joan Ritcey retired as Head of Memorial University’s Centre for Newfoundland Studies (CNS). Joan worked with Memorial University Libraries for 38 years, and throughout her career, she shared her extensive knowledge of all things Newfoundland and Labrador, working to collect and preserve the print culture of our province, making it widely accessible through digitization initiatives and research tools. The Periodical Article Bibliography (PAB) was developed under her leadership and is an essential tool for finding articles about all aspects of life in Newfoundland and Labrador.

In this episode of the Living Heritage Podcast, we talk about the history and development of the CNS, the PAB, changes in research, digitization, and the library holdings.
