AHMMay is Asian Heritage Month and the TC2 Pivotal Voices online collection contains resources that highlight the roles and experiences of Chinese and South Asian Canadians.

Check out Pages from the Past, an interactive game that focuses on historical perspective through the values and life choices of four fictional Chinese characters from the 1850s to the 1940s. Students earn rewards by offering sound advice that is respectful of the historical realities and personal aspirations of each character

Welcome to UBC Library’s fourth annual Community Report, which highlights some of the inspiring and innovative ways that UBC Library has engaged students, staff, and community and faculty members during the past year. The theme guiding this issue is sustainability, one of the central issues of our time. As the UBC Sustainability site notes, “Sustainability at UBC isn’t just a word to define – it’s a term that defines us and how we interact with the world.”

Sustainability is also a key commitment in Place and Promise, UBC’s strategic plan – and we wanted to show some of the ways that the Library is supporting economic, environmental and social sustainability at the University. Our efforts include contributions to Better World Books, physical and digital preservation programs, digitization projects on the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses, a technology training program for international students, and initiatives that support open and unfettered access to knowledge.

In the spirit of sustainability and engagement, the Community Report is being published solely online – we encourage you to post comments and share our stories.

Enjoy – and let the conversation begin!
