The Public Knowledge Project is building prototype websites in collaboration with other organizations, such as Vancouver Sun newspaper and British Columbia Teachers Federation, that push the boundaries of knowledge access and management with a focus on integrating research resources with more public information sources and more interactive environments. Some of these prototypes have run for short periods, to address a newspaper series or a policy issue, and some continue to operate.
