A fascinating exhibition that complements the release of a new book on children’s literature is now on display at UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) division.

Picturing Canada: Canadian Children’s Illustrated Books and Publishing, highlights Canadian picturebooks from the last 200 years. The exhibition includes rare children’s books as well as popular productions from recent years. It was curated by Shannon Ozirny, Meaghan Scanlon and Geneviève Valleau, all students at UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies.

The exhibition features highlights from Picturing Canada: A History of Canadian Children’s Illustrated Books and Publishing, written by Judith Saltman and Gail Edwards. Saltman is an Associate Professor at UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies and Chair of the Master of Arts in Children’s Literature program; Edwards is the Chair of the Department of History at Douglas College.

Chinese history on the Prairies

Our colleagues at the University of Alberta have mounted an exhibition called "The other side of Gold Mountain: Glimpses of Chinese pioneer life on the Prairies."  The Drs. Chung recently donated a number of documents related to the Chinese history on the Praries to the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at U of A, and the exhibition also contains several items on loan from the Chung Collection here at UBC.
