Following another exciting year of the open access movement – “International Open Access Week 2018: Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge” headlining as this year’s theme, it is nice to share some highlights which took place here and abroad:



– Creating and Managing Your Academic Profile
In this workshop, participants developed scholarly/publication profiles via traditional and social tools and identified ways to broadly participate in their respective fields (e.g. webinars, blogs, open education resources)
– Put a License On It!
This hands-on workshop enabled participants to bring their own presentations, papers, reports, and images for which they wanted to attach a Creative Commons license so that others would know if they could their works for re-use, re-mix, etc.
– Emerging Media Lab – demo session
Attendees saw a live demo of the new technologies and tools available in UBC’s Emerging Media Lab
– Tri-Agency Open Access Policy: Requirements and Routes to Compliance
This workshop provided research authors, grant holders, and other scholars on how to make their work comply with Open Access policies from Canada’s Tri-Agencies (NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR) including publication and self-archiving tips and strategies
– Open But Not Free: Invisible Labour in Open Scholarship
A panel event with Q&A about the invisible labour in open scholarship as it relates to the rise of open scholarship has resulted in new challenges for practitioners and stakeholders working within a system in transition
Pixelating – Digital Humanities Mixer: “So I’ve done some stuff in Text-Encoding Initiative (TEI)…now what?”

Our new Collection Spotlight is up!  “Winter Wonderland” is a gathering of children’s books with a winter theme.  Check out UBC Education Library’s bibliography of children’s books on winter.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the annual Marion Woodward Lecture series made possible with the continuing support of the Mr. and Mrs. P.A. Woodward’s Foundation.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by UBC School of Nursing.

Presented by: Dr. Dawn Stacey, Professor & University Research Chair in Knowledge Translation to Patients, University of Ottawa

Mounting evidence demonstrates that engaging patients and the public as partners in healthcare decisions at both individual and community levels leads to better outcomes. However, patients and the public are not adequately engaged across a spectrum of health services and at multiple levels. This presentation will discuss evidence-based strategies and tools for supporting active patient and public involvement to put ‘patients first’ when making decisions about healthcare policies, research, organization governance, and direct care.

Dawn Stacey, RN, PhD, CON(C), holds a Research Chair in Knowledge Translation to Patients and is a Professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Ottawa. She is the Scientific Director of the Patient Decision Aids Research Group at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. She was inducted as a member of the College of the Royal Society of Canada in recognition of her research. She leads the Cochrane Review of Patient Decision Aids, and co-chairs the Steering Committee for the International Patient Decision Aid Standards Collaboration.

Dr. Stacey’s internationally recognized research aims to understand, measure, and evaluate implementation of decision coaching and decision support tools for patients and healthcare professionals. She leads national and international initiatives to synthesize effective interventions and develop standards for translating scientific knowledge into user-friendly tools. Her research findings are used in clinical practice, continuing education for healthcare professionals, and health policy in Canada, Chile, the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.
