It is a pleasure to release the cIRcle Annual Impact & Activity Report 2016-2017!


In 2016-2017, cIRcle (UBC’s Digital Repository) had over 56,000 items. In the past two years, cIRcle has archived more than 4,000 deposits per year — an average annual growth rate of 8%.


Other highlights included in the report:

  • A breakdown of the increase in faculty content and a quick summary of the top content contributors
  • Developed cIRcle guidelines and practices on improving metadata for greater access and discoverability via UBC Library’s Open Collections portal
  • Featured Research Associate Emerita at the Royal British Columbia Museum and UBC alumna, Mary-Lou Florian
  • Spotlight on a few key partnerships and collaborations such as the Vancouver Institute Lecture Series and more


A quick sampling of new additions to cIRcle included:

Form follows parking : strategies for mitigating the impacts of excess parking supply

Embedding the Frames of Evidence-Based Practice : Intersections in Librarianship

Research Data Management (RDM) Needs of Science and Engineering Researchers : A View from Canada
