The waterfall outside Xwi7xwa was original Chief Simon Baker’s idea and has been a part of the Longhouse since its creation, serving as a reminder that “water is the most important thing in our lives.” [i] After 24 years, some elements of this feature were in need of repair and we are excited to announce that the work being done is nearing completion…

The goal of the project is to maintain the original design while restoring the areas that have suffered in the 24 years since the waterfall was created. The University of British Columbia has been working with outside contractors on the project, which should be completed within the next two weeks. Once the work is finished, we look forward to a revitalized water feature: a gentle waterfall with a small pool at the bottom, reaffirming the importance of water in Indigenous teachings and ways of knowing.

The Library’s Summon Working Group has implemented two immediate changes to the UBC Library’s current instance of Summon. These changes took effect on Wednesday, September 13, 2017:

  • AskAway (chat with Library staff) has now been added to Summon. It can be found under the “chat bubbles” icon on the upper right of the Basic (keyword) search and Advanced search pages. When the AskAway service is closed, there is an “Ask Us” option in the Qwidget which leads to other contact methods
  • The setting that previously automatically removed Newspaper Article results from Summon has been removed. Previously, this was needed to control the large number of newspaper article results that could populate a Summon search result list. Now, Newspaper articles are “lumped” together in a “Newspaper Rollup” feature that will appear partway down the results list (location varies due to weighting of results). For example, looking at this search result:!/search?ho=t&l=en&q=apples you can see the Newspaper Rollup under result #9. Clicking on  “News results for “apples””    brings up all the news results (note: some are described as “Journal Articles”, but their genre is “News”).

We welcome all comments and feedback about our Summon discovery service: the good, the bad and the ugly! You can do this by clicking on the User Feedback (upper right of the Summon results page).
