The latest collection spotlight is up! Visit UBC Education Library’s display: June is National Indigenous History Month!

Connections to the Curriculum:

In BC’s K-12 curriculum, First Peoples content, perspectives, and Principles of Learning are acknowledged and affirmed through Big Ideas, Core Competencies, rationale statements, and learning standards. Teachers are encouraged to center the place and communities in which they teach in order to embed Aboriginal knowledge and worldviews in meaningful ways.

From the Overview of the BC Curriculum: “British Columbia’s education transformation therefore incorporates the Aboriginal voice and perspective by having Aboriginal expertise at all levels, ensuring that Aboriginal content is a part of the learning journey for all students….An important goal in integrating Aboriginal perspectives into curricula is to ensure that all learners have opportunities to understand and respect their own cultural heritage as well as that of others.”


From the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada:

BC’s education system also has an important role to play in responding to the TRC’s Calls to Actions. The following are two of the calls to action identified in Education for Reconciliation:

62 i: Calls upon all levels of government to consult and collaborate with Aboriginal peoples and residential school survivors to “Make age-appropriate curriculum on residential schools, Treaties, and Aboriginal peoples’ historical and contemporary contributions to Canada a mandatory education requirement for Kindergarten to Grade Twelve students” (pg. 7).

63 i: Calls upon Ministers of Education with regards to “Developing and implementing Kindergarten to Grade Twelve curriculum and learning resources on Aboriginal peoples in Canadian history, and the history and legacy of residential schools (pg. 7).

You can read all of the TRC Calls to Action at http://trc.ca/assets/pdf/Calls_to_Action_English2.pdf

UBC Library is pleased to announce that Sarah Blay, Katherine Hill, Paul Lesack and Lorne Madgett are the 2019 recipients of UBC Library Awards. Each year, the Library Awards Program shines a light on those employees who have demonstrated exceptional creativity, innovation, leadership, excellence and a dedication to customer service through their work.

The awards were presented at the annual Library Recognition Luncheon at the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre on May 28, 2019. Congratulations Sarah, Katherine, Paul and Lorne, and thank you to everyone who participated by submitting nominations.

Sarah Blay

Sarah Blay (Program and Administrative Assistant, Koerner Library) is the winner of our newest award, introduced this year. The 2019 UBC Library Leadership From Within (aka the Gumption) Award recognizes employees who do not have supervisory responsibilities. Recipients of this award consistently demonstrate leadership through their ability to inspire engagement in others, while exemplifying the Library’s values. They step up to fulfill a need either themselves or by motivating others or teams.

Sarah brings a welcoming team approach and works from a place of inclusion. She ensures everyone in the Research Commons space knows each other and feels welcomed and included. She also stepped up to help out when others were unexpectedly away at a crucial time.

Katherine Hill

Katherine Hill (Circulation and Office Manager, Woodward Library) earned the Employee Excellence Award, which recognizes a Library employee who consistently demonstrates their commitment to making an impact on the Library by making it a better workplace for all through living our values and behaviors.

In everything she does, Katherine works to create an exceptional workplace environment. She is known as a go-to person across the Library, sharing her knowledge widely and helping colleagues in other units get up to speed. She brings patience, creativity, humour, and solution-oriented support to each workplace experience.

Their efforts help UBC Library to effectively deliver the stellar service that users have come to expect.

Paul has become the backbone of critical support for UBC’s complex network of campus-wide interdisciplinary data need. His unsung work can be seen at the core of many research projects, including his work with the Vancouver Aquarium to create digital, manipulatable versions of the original paper maps. These maps have become essential to researchers who are currently working to daylight once hidden streams.

Lorne Madgett

Lorne Madgett (e-Resources & Access Library Specialist, Collections Services) is the winner of the Innovation Award, which recognizes a Library employee who has demonstrated new ways of performing existing processes or has introduced a new library service or program that is beneficial to Library employees and/or users.

Lorne has demonstrated the ability to work with people at all levels of the organization and supply chain, earning the respect and loyalty of his unit members, other technical services staff, branch liaisons and Library administration.
