About this collection

The Curriculum Library at the University of Victoria has a unique collection of textbooks used in British Columbia’s public schools since the province joined confederation in 1871. This historical textbooks collection includes books on a variety of school subjects including science, math, health, English and language arts, foreign languages, history, and social studies. With their large readership these textbooks have touched the lives of many citizens for nearly a century and a half. School textbooks provide us with insight into the thinking, priorities, values, and assumptions of those who wrote, taught, and read these books.
