The museum's collection of Northwest Coast art is especially strong. Although the online resources are not numerous, there are a number of interesting projects being developed by museum staff including Indian Cowgirls, a preview of a multimedia CD-ROM on Northwest Coast Totem Poles, and sourcebooks. Pam Brown, Curator of Ethnology and Media, describes sourcebooks as consisting of " text taken from oral testimony, library research, contemporary and archival photographs, illustrations and maps to 'tell a story.' Through the use of a minimum amount of explanatory text, they profile people, organizations, events or processes in the form of an exhibit-book." Sourcebooks are a way for members of First Nations to tell their own stories utilizing musuem resources.
