just got an email from rob mclennan via Lori Emerson re. new bpNichol website. Thought I would quote it at length.

Dear all,

After years of planning we are pleased to launch, an
online public archive of the works of bpNichol and his collaborators.
Here ( you will find audio, digitized print
materials, photographs, links and eventually video, critical articles
and curated exhibitions - all of which we expect to be tremendously
useful for research and teaching.

The site was developed by the Artmob project in collaboration with
Ellie Nichol, and is designed as a not-for-profit community

It is intended as the start of a process, and we encourage everyone to
read our submission guidelines if you have material you would like to
contribute or an idea for an exhibition of bp's work.

Artmob is a York University-based research project dedicated to
building accessible public archives of Canadian art. Over the coming
years Artmob will add tools to improve the browsing and cataloguing.
It will also provide novel approaches to intellectual property,
encouraging contributors to identify themselves and set the terms of
use for their works. Artmob hopes that a spirit of fair dealing will
assist in getting artistic materials out of shoeboxes and filing
cabinets and into the world where they belong. is Artmob's
pilot project.

Once again, if you or your students (undergraduate or graduate) would
like to contribute to the site, please get in touch with us. Here are
our submission guidelines:

Please explore and enjoy!

best, Lori Emerson

Needless to say of course, this web site should not be a substitute for the obtaining the original documents. To get the real deal, i.e. books and mags and other poetic ephemera, contact or write to Ottawa poet & bookseller jwcurry:
