It is a pleasure to announce the release of cIRcle, UBC’s Research Repository Impact and Activity Report for 2018-2019!

 

In 2018-2019, cIRcle continued its focus on increasing faculty content with over 1,000 new items added – that’s a 9.6% increase from last year.

 

Examples of some new and ongoing cIRcle partnerships include the following: Database of Religious History (DRH) entries, Transnational Business Governance Interactions (TBGI) Working Papers, audio and video recordings of the Vancouver Institute Lectures, a mix of textual and other media content of the From the Ground Up: Buddhism & East Asian Religions, School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) Graduating Projects, and the UBC Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies’ Ziegler Series of video lecture recordings.

 

Another cIRcle highlight is the newly automated ingest stream of faculty content published by Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI) via the SWORD (Simple Web-Service Offering Repository Deposit) protocol as well as cIRcle’s collaborative work in enhancing metadata and digital preservation with Artefactual and Atmire.

 

Discover UBC research in cIRcle – from preprints and postprints of journal articles to conference proceedings to departmental publications and technical reports to lecture/course notes, and much more.

Our new major book display is up just in time for the start of the new academic year!  The theme is “how do library services and resources support the development of multiple literacies?”
Browse this display on the main level of the library just outside the Young Learners Library.

The display is designed to complement the Unlock Library Literacy workshops that each teacher education student will participate in as part of LLED 350 or LLED 360 during September. Students will actively explore a selection of library resources and get to know the Education Library at the same time. Exploration stations are focused on themes of Indigenous perspectives and critical literacy, differentiated reading materials, leisure reading, coding and computational thinking resources, and “making” stories through unplugged STEAM activities.

The following essential questions are our guides for exploration: 

What role does the library play in literacy education? How do library services and resources support the development of multiple literacies?

The Unlock Library Literacy workshops model a gamified approach to learning design. Research indicates that gamification of education can improve learning outcomes, engagement and motivation, self-efficacy, and knowledge retention (Rabah, Cassidy, & Beauchemin, 2018). During the workshops, students will receive a series of numbers after completing each station, which can be used to unlock a box and get a surprise.
