Join us in conversation on July 11 with the creator of the Public Knowledge Project, Professor John Willinsky. Co-hosted by UBC Library and UBC iSchool.
In honour of the 60th anniversary of the Library's acquisition of the Puban Collection, Rare Books and Special Collections will be hosting bi-weekly tours highlighting items from the Puban Collection throughout the summer, starting July 9.

June is recognized as Aboriginal History Month but at UBC Library we hold a tradition of (Un)History Month — a celebration and acknowledgement of the importance of Indigenous Peoples – not only in history – but in the present and future.

This collaborative exhibit showcases the first digital books to come from RavenSpace, a new model of publishing, for interactive, media-rich books in Indigenous studies, where communities and scholars can work together in a culturally respectful way:

  • Elsie Paul, with Davis McKenzie, Paige Raibmon, and Harmony Johnson, As I Remember It: Teachings (ʔəms taʔaw) from the life of a Sliammon Elder (UBC Press)
  • Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse, with Coreen Child, Kaleb Child, and Tommy Child of the Kwag’uł, Kans Hiłile (Making It Right): A Collaborative Reframing of Kwakiutl Film and Audio Recordings with Franz Boas (University of Washington Press)
  • Musqueam First Nation, Musqueam Stories Transformed (UBC Press).

RavenSpace is an initiative of UBC Press with the participation of University of Washington Press.

Come and see how these publications – with animations, classroom resources, and multiple pathways through text and media – are made.

EXHIBIT LAUNCH AND RECEPTION: June 5 from 5:30 to 7 pm, Chilcotin Room (256), IKBLC

About Indigenous (Un)History Month

The “un” represents the continued importance and relevance of Indigenous peoples in Canada and around the world. These contributions should be recognized daily, not just once a year. UBC Library’s first Aboriginal (Un)History Month event kicked off in June 2012.

Across Enchanted Lands: Universal Motifs in Illustrated Fairy Tales is on display from March 1 through May 30, 2019. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and people of all ages are encouraged to attend.
Reduce your UBC Library fines by donating non-perishable food items until April 1st.

To kick off 2019, UBC’s Music Art and Architecture Library and Rare Books and Special Collections are celebrating the year that was with a selection of 2018 new acquisitions.

The Music Art and Architecture Library selections, representing all of its subject areas, includes donation highlights, exhibition catalogues, music scores and manuscript facsimiles, and more. RBSC’s acquisitions highlights include items dating from the 16th century to 2018 and run the gamut from books and ephemera, to photographs, letters, artworks, and more. Make sure to keep an eye out for the “RBSC favourites,” top picks of RBSC’s archivists, librarians, staff, and students especially selected from among many 2018 acquisitions.

The selection of Music Art and Architecture Library and Rare Books and Special Collections 2018 acquisitions is on display in the foyer of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre until February 27, 2019. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The Chapman Learning Commons (CLC) on Level 3 of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will be closed for renovations starting Wednesday, December 19, 2018.
The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will be closed from Friday, December 28 through Saturday, December 29, 2018 due to a health and safety requirement while the fire alarm control panels are replaced, as part of scheduled maintenance.


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.
