Abstract: People of Chinese origin have lived in British Columbia, Canada, since the beginning of non-aboriginal settlement. Many of them have left Chinese-language records that are valuable for the study of Chinese immigrant history. This article provides information about a pilot project completed at the Asian Library of the University of British Columbia to build a learning-object repository using an archival collection of historical Chinese language materials. The collection supports the undergraduate curriculum Chinese-Canadian history. This article introduces the definition and characteristics of learning objects and learning-objects metadata resulting from the project's investigation and the author's experience with selecting and testing systems to develop a prototype of a learning-object repository.
