UBC Library’s Rare Books & Special Collections, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, The Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society and the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop have collaborated to present an exhibition that captures the continual impact of iconic Asian Canadian Jim Wong-Chu.

The exhibit runs October 10 to November 15 on Level 2 of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, located on the UBC Vancouver campus.

Jim Wong-Chu (1945- July-11-2017) was a well-known Asian-Canadian historian, editor, author, and poet. Born in Hong Kong, Wong-Chu came to Canada in 1953. He attended the Vancouver School of Art (Emily Carr University of Art + Design) from 1975-1981, majoring in photography and design. From 1976-1981, Wong-Chu was involved with the Vancouver Co-op Radio Program on culture and assimilation, Pender Guy Radio Program while working at the Vancouver School of Art.

Considered one of the first Asian-Canadian authors who gave voice to the Asian Communities in the times when the support for the Asian arts was difficult to obtain. Jim Wong-Chu dedicated much of his time to compile a literary anthology, “Many Mouthed Birds” to showcase the richness of Asian-Canadian literature. During 1995 and 1996 Jim Wong-Chu co-founded the Asian Canadian Performing Arts Resource (ACPAR) and became one of the founders of the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop (ACWW) where he helped many young Asian-Canadian writers to succeed by editing and finding publishers for their works. Jim Wong-Chu along with Mishtu Banerjee, Mo-Ling Chui, Grace Eiko Thomson, and Winston Xin​ formed the Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society, as an organization that endeavoured to explore the diversity of Asian Canadian life and culture and promote the discussion of relevant issues and concerns within and beyond the Asian Canadian communities.

As of mid-August, 2019, there has been a change to EBSCOhost search results in databases. They have added “Apply equivalent subjects” to the Search Expanders (under Advanced Search) and set the default to “on” (box ticked).

What this means is that in EBSCOhost databases, if a search term or phrase matches to an equivalent concept within its subjects, that concept will be included in the search as well. For example, in ERIC a search for the phrase “conflict management” also automatically includes the phrase “conflict resolution” – unless the box for “Apply equivalent subjects” is un-ticked first.

However, the “subjects” are not consistent between databases. For example, the above “conflict management” search produces the same results in CINAHL with or without “Apply equivalent subjects” activated. It does not add “conflict resolution“. But a search in CINAHL for “medical device” does bring up different results depending if the “Apply equivalent subjects” box is ticked or not as it will add the subject “Equipment and Supplies” (ERIC returns the same number of results for “medical device” either way).

To add a further wrinkle, some databases will look for plurals & possessives of search terms -even when in a phrase- while others won’t. ERIC does this, CINAHL does not… and this can get very confusing if you start to nest truncation in searches or move between databases expecting that they all act the same way.

Look for the listing of subject headings or Thesaurus in your preferred database (if available) to see what it includes and read the following articles for more info:

Join UBC students and faculty to discuss what secondary students need to know to be successful in the post-secondary environment. By making connections between inquiry-based learning in the K-12 context and information literacy in the post-secondary environment, attendees will explore opportunities for educators to support student transition between K-12 and higher education.

We’re getting ready to kick off the 10th annual UBC Library United Way Spelling Bee on Thursday, October 17. UBC faculty, staff and students are invited to create a team of 4-10 people and compete for the win in this annual cross-campus event to raise awareness for the United Way.

Orange Shirt Day is September 30. UBC Library’s research guide has compiled curated lists of materials which address the reality of the Indian Residential Schools. Many include additional resources for teaching or encouraging discussion at home.

Autumn is the spawning season in B.C. when salmon fight their way upstream as they complete their final journey. On Campbell River in Vancouver Island or Capilano River in North Vancouver, you’ll be sure to spot salmon leaping their way back home. For this post, we gathered historical images related to salmon in B.C. from our Open Collections, hoping to provide you a taste of these incredible creatures.

The Chung Collection contains books, archival documents, artifacts and photographs about the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, early British Columbian history, and immigration and settlement in BC. This picture in the book By track and trail: a journey through Canada from the Chung Collection illustrates a run of salmon in the Fraser River at North Bend, B.C.

As the author and illustrator Edward Roper explained:

The illustration of this scene is not an atom exaggerated, except that I have made the fish more visible, but they were even closer packed in the water than I have shown.

Let’s take a close look. This photo from Fisherman Publishing Society Collection shows how packed they can be!

Salmon run, 1977

This postcard from Uno Langmann Family Collection of B.C. Photographs captures salmon jumping over water.

Salmon leaping the falls, [between 1900 and 1930?]

Salmon watching and fishing are fun activities in many places in B.C. A lot of pamphlets in the Chung Collection list it as one of the best things to do in B.C. This photo is from a pamphlet related to trips to Vancouver Island aboard Princess ships. Look how big the fish can be!

Another pamphlet that promotes salmon fishing in Victoria, B.C.

This photo, from a Canadian Pacific Railway pamphlet, shows fish ladders on the Fraser River. The ladders permit salmon to make their way upstream to spawn in the fresh waters where they were born.

By train… through the Canadian Rockies, [1950?], p. 21

In this map of Vancouver Island, you can even find an “S” in the legend which stands for salmon fishing.

Finally, here’s a photo depicting Chinese workers unloading salmon at Butterfield and Mackie Cannery, New Westminster, B.C.
