Created by McGill University Library Digital Collections, the Canadian War Poster Collection offers digitizations of 250 Canadian posters from World War I and World War II, drawn from the university's special collections. Typically designed to aid recruiting and financing campaigns, the posters reached mass audiences, but today are of interest to students, teachers, and researchers. The site includes an extensive introduction providing background and context on the posters and their uses. The holdings are searchable by keyword, war, artist, and purpose, and the site also includes an artist index. All site materials are available in English, as well as in French translation.
