Biographical history

C Government Name ; ADMIN HIST: In 1970-71 the Division of Audio-visual Services name was changed to the Audio-visual Services Branch. On April 1, 1974 this name was changed to the Provincial Educational Media Centre.

Custodial history

Transferred from Provincial Education Media Centre (PEMC) to Government Information Services' (GIS) image bank, circa 1979. Records were subsequently transferred to BC Archives upon dissolution of GIS in 1988.

Scope and content

The series consists of photographic negatives produced by PEMC, and predecessor agencies including the Division of School of Radio Broadcasts, Division of Visual Education, Division of Audio-Visual Services and Audio-Visual Services Branch. These agencies were responsible for providing media services to public education institutions. The records document school sites and educational programs for elementary, secondary, college and university students in British Columbia.

Subjects often relate to specific classes and schools, and include: projects and performances; facilities; ceremonies; teachers, staff and government officials; students; and displays and exhibits for promotional purposes. Included are some copy photos depicting schools and classes from the 1880s to 1920s. Records' arrangement based on original PEMC numbers. These numbers appear to reflect a general arrangement by date and subject matter. Records include PEMC numbers: PEMC45001-PEMC52881, PEMC74/1/1-PEMC75/86/4, and PEMC7591-PEMC7780. The series also includes two indexes or item lists, the first created by the PEMC and the second by either the PEMC or the GIS and amended by the BC Archives. These indexes are incomplete and are stored in container 000352-0014.
