Woodward Library’s new front entrance, which has been under construction since the end of December, has reopened as of August 8. A new front entrance was built to improve accessibility for disabled or handicapped visitors.

The course reserves section has been considerably minimized, and a new space full of natural light created. It offers 33 study spaces and tables, a bar height counter and lounge chairs for comfortable studying. The space is already attracting students and Aleteia Greenwood, Head of Woodward Library, predicts the space will be jam-packed once the school year starts again.

In addition to the new student-focused space, Greenwood says one of the most-needed new improvements was the creation of a consultation room for librarians. “We have faculty members and researchers that do consultation and research work with librarians, so this room is a perfect space for these meetings.” The new room is adjacent to the study area, and can be booked by librarians for consulting projects. 

The new study area also features the new Seed Lending Library cabinet which offers seeds for use. The seeds are available to anyone – for more information on the Seed Lending Library visit their website

Lights, camera, action! Video production involves the capture of moving images on various forms of electronic media. A video production business often specializes in a certain area of production, such as television commercials, corporate videos, event videos, or educational videos. The video production industry has made headlines in British Columbia as the province is in the midst of a production boom. We decided that now is an ideal time to spotlight the SBA’s resources for video production businesses.

Industry Overview

BC

Creative BC reports that British Columbia has a thriving digital media industry fueled by the province’s strong talent base and established production infrastructure. BC production companies have extensive credits demonstrating high quality production work across a diverse range of projects, which contribute to BC’s status as one of the largest centres for film and television production in North America. As municipalities around the province are reporting record numbers of TV, movie, and commercial shoots, production companies are scrambling to find shooting locations around British Columbia.

Canada

According to a 2017 IBISWorld Report on the Movie, Television, and Video Production Industry in Canada, the video production industry is poised for continued growth in Canada over the next five years. High-quality video content has strategic value for digital streaming services that are competing for viewers in addition to movie theaters, broadcasters, and other online platforms. However, this growth is dependent on continued domestic tax incentives because public sources, including tax credits, account for the majority of industry financing. An industry profile from The Canadian Media Producers Association points out that the growth of the video production industry is also linked to that of content packagers: broadcasters and distributors, two other key sources of financing, are impacted by changing consumer behaviour.

Industry trends and challenges

The 2016 Economic Report on the Screen-Based Media Production Industry in Canada addresses trends and challenges in the video production industry. The industry is in transition due to the changing ways that consumers engage with screen-based media products: engaged participants who seek on-demand, immersive media experience are replacing traditionally passive film and television viewers. Video production industry players need to be prepared to repurpose traditional content for interactive uses, such as augmented reality and virtual reality, and be attuned to emerging devices for screen-based content.

Specificity is another industry trend identified by the report: in the digital world, Canadian consumers are tailoring their content experiences, signing up for niche subscription content offerings, and looking for “freemium content” (ad-supported content that is available at no cost). Ultimately, Canadian consumers want video content that is relevant and tailored to them.

“The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.” — Albert Einstein, Astrophysicist

 

It is thrilling to announce the new arrival of a collaborative report which just archived in cIRcle, UBC`s Digital Repository!

This report was “submitted to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and the Space Advisory Board in response to a call for input into the development of Canada’s Space Strategy”. It echoes the voices of its contributors who wanted to respond to the call in an efficient and timely manner and, in conjunction, they welcome feedback about the report.

One of the primary authors of this report is UBC’s Jeremy Heyl, a Canada Research Chair in Neutron Stars and Black Holes whose research background includes theoretical physics, astronomy and astrophysics (high-energy astrophysics) as well as research topics on compact objects, cosmology, dynamics, and strong-field QED. His co-authors include UBC Doctoral student, Ilaria Caiazzo and Western University’s Associate Professor, Sarah Gallagher, whose research areas include active galaxies, black holes, and compact groups of galaxies.

 

Developing the technology required for space exploration missions (space astronomy, planetary science, and space health and life sciences) represents one of the most challenging engineering opportunities of our time and an economic driver for advanced technologies. This leads to prosperity through innovation and the associated use of technologies developed for space exploration (e.g., surgical robotics, telemedicine, remote mining, imaging), strengthening Canada’s international reputation as an advanced nation in science and technology research, and raising literacy by inspiring Canadian students to pursue higher education in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas critical to developing tomorrow’s technically capable Canadian workforce. Indeed, space exploration, perhaps uniquely, ignites interest and motivates young minds to pursue careers in the sciences, engineering and high-tech sectors. Consequently, Canadian universities have made and continue to make substantial investments in faculty, students, cutting-edge laboratories and infrastructure related to space exploration.

“In the second century of Confederation,

the fabric of Canadian society will be held together by strands in space

just as strongly as railway and telegraphy held together the scattered provinces in the last century.”
