Global Summitry Archive: A Searchable Memory of Global Governance
The Global Summitry Archive, created by the Global Summitry Project (GSP) at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, aims to collect and preserve publicly accessible information and websites related to global summits, including leader and other officials’ meetings and conferences.
Governments and international institutions are increasingly using websites as their primary means for disseminating information about meetings, conferences, and summits. On the other hand, there is a lack of a centralized effort to capture and preserve content that has been published online.
The Global Summitry Archive has been created to serve as an unofficial secretariat for all digital content related to global governance with a two-pronged focus on preservation and accessibility. In terms of preservation, the Archive aims to collect – as completely as possible – all online information related to global governance. In terms of accessibility, the Archive will remain publicly accessible and is designed to accommodate keyword searches to allow users to quickly find the information they are looking for.
Using Archive-It, a web-archiving service provided by The Internet Archive, the Global Summitry Project has successfully preserved 125 websites containing over 3 million documents. The collection will continue to grow as more websites and content is published online.
The Global Summitry Project welcomes feedback and suggestions. If there is a website we haven’t captured that you think we should – let us know.

Regent Park Community Resource Library
Welcome to the Regent Park Community Resource Library.
This resource library was created by Lena Sanz Tovar and Keisha St. Louis-McBurnie while they were Master of Science in Planning students at the University of Toronto's Department of Geography and Planning.
In 2020 and 2021, Lena and Keisha worked as researchers with the University of Toronto and Spacing Magazine's Regent Park Indicators Project funded by the Metcalf Foundation and led by Professor Shauna Brail and John Lorinc. This project seeks to create a replicable study that captures and measures neighbourhood change in Regent Park throughout the revitalization process and is supported with additional funding from Mitacs and the University of Toronto's School of Cities.
The project includes a report, published in Spacing, with this accompanying online database of previous research and publications about Regent Park.
