Indigenous Archival Resources Awareness Day

When: Friday, September 20, 1:00-3:30

Where: Rare Books and Special Collections, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre

 

Join a team of librarians, archivists, faculty and outreach colleagues for a session that looks at resources available for the research and teaching of Indigenous studies and history at UBC. We will look at resources and services from the Xwi7xwa Library, Rare Books and Special Collections, and digital archives available through the library (both open access and purchased). There will be a chance to get hands on with both physical documents and digitised material such as Indigenous newspapers (please bring laptops with you for the latter). The discussion will include case studies of using the resources in teaching, ideas for using them in future research and instruction, and ethical considerations of using this material.

 

If you’d like to attend, please RSVP to coll.thrush@ubc.ca.

A beloved room in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will be transformed and upgraded thanks to a generous gift from Tony and Marissa Peña.
