A visit to the Wing Sang building

When we have visitors to the Chung Collection exhibition, we always tell the story of Yip Sang, and his large family and business that occupied 51 East Pender Street in Vancouver. This historic building fell into disrepair in the 1980’s-90’s, but has since had new life breathed into it as the space for the Rennie Collection. A couple of weekends ago a group of us local archivists took advantage of their free tours to explore both the current art exhibition as well as this historic building.

There is still room to register for the Rare Books and Special Collections workshop for graduate students on archival research skills on Friday Oct. 21 at noon-2 pm.  Designed for beginners, this workshop will cover the basics of archival research and organization, and finish with some hands-on examples from the collections at UBC Library. This workshop will be held in the Rare Books and Special Collections division of the library, Room 110 in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.

Please note that participants will be asked to leave their coats and bags in lockers when they arrive; notepads and pencils are provided, or feel free to bring a laptop.

This is a great opportunity for new grads, or those who have been to Rare Books and Special Collections or other archives in the past but would like a refresher.
