Eighteen projects have been named as successful recipients of the 2018-2019 B.C. History Digitization Program (BCHDP) funding awards.

The digitization program, an initiative of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, was launched in 2006. It provides matching funds that help libraries, archives, museums and other organizations digitize unique historical items, including images, print and sound materials.

The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre funding totaled nearly $180,000 for the 2018-2019 round. Altogether, the B.C. History Digitization program has provided more than $1 million for more than 100 projects throughout British Columbia.

This year’s diverse range of projects includes the digitization of newspapers and publications from various B.C. regions, video works from the 1970s by Vancouver artists, the Ann Gomer Sunahara fonds, documents and videos relating to women’s labour history, the last phase of the British Columbia Sessional papers project, bird taxidermy, product packaging, and more.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients!

Due to an upgrade to the Library’s Catalogue, patrons will not be able to request materials from ASRS starting Sunday May 13, 2018 at 6 p.m. Full service is expected to resume May 19, 2018.

A recent UBC Library service bulletin has more information about the scheduled outages and their impact on the UBC Library system more broadly.

While RBSC will not be able to retrieve materials from the ASRS (any item with the location listed as RARE BOOKS & SPECIAL COLLECTIONS ASRS storage in the catalogue record), we will still be able to retrieve materials stored in the RBSC vault (any item with the location listed as RARE BOOKS & SPECIAL COLLECTIONS in the catalogue record). Materials stored in the ASRS generally include textual archival materials and contemporary books.

If you have questions about whether an item might be available, please contact Rare Books and Special Collections at (604) 822-2521 or



The Scholarly Communications team has recently released two videos meant to provide the UBC community with a brief introduction into two important topics:

  • How to comply with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications and;
  • Author Rights (everything you need to know before, during, and after you sign a publisher agreement)

The format for these videos is information you can use in 5 minutes or less, so if you have a few minutes to spare and are curious, check them out below:
