An innovative project that involves students and members of B.C’s Chinese-Canadian community is well underway.

The three-year effort involves students interviewing Chinese-Canadian community members – elders in particular – to record and preserve the oft-ignored history of the Chinese in Canada. UBC Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre are involved in the project, which is the brainchild of Henry Yu, an associate professor in UBC’s Department of History.
