About Local Area Files

Local Area Files include mainly local newspaper articles. Articles about Okanagan College (OC) as well as a wide of local cultural, social, economic and environmental issues relevant to OC courses and programs are  included. File contents may vary between campus libraries and each campus selects articles appropriate to their area within the College region. Library of Congress subject headings are used so files can be listed and searched in the OC Library catalogue. Whenever possible subject headings for Local Area Files include a geographical designation.

Examples of Local Area Files include articles on past and present OC faculty (e.g. John Lent), engineering and environmental issues such as landslides, water-supply, forest fires and endangered species, social issues such as migrant agricultural laborers, prostitution and the homeless, economic issues such as wineries, wine tourism and real estate development, and culture (e.g. Okanagan Symphony).
