The University of British Columbia Archives has a new website: http://archives.library.ubc.ca/!

This is a significant milestone, for several reasons.  It is the first re-design of the Archives’ website since March 2010.  Also, it coincides with the migration of the site to UBC Library’s WordPress web platform.  Finally, the updated design is now fully consistent with the Library’s Common Look and Feel (CLF) website branding.

All of our on-line historical resources – including inventories of textual records, digitized photographs and publications, virtual displays, and general historical information about the University – are still available, as are links to our access policies and procedures, records management services, and Flickr and Twitter accounts.  A standard WordPress search tool for the website is available on every page.  News and updates can be accessed on our blog, now located at http://archives.library.ubc.ca/news/.

Links to the old website should be automatically re-directed to the appropriate part of the new site.  Please let us know about any broken links or other errors.

Thanks to Yvonne Chan for technical support and advice during the re-design.

We invite you to explore the new website at http://archives.library.ubc.ca/.

UBC is suspending classes today, September 18th, so that faculty, students, and staff can participate in the first day of the Vancouver National Event of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.  The National Event runs September 18th-21st at the Pacific National Exhibition, Hastings Park, Vancouver.

It takes something of major significance like the TRC National Event for the University to suspend classes.  Past interruptions to University programmes, however, have been in response to major crises rather than in conjunction with a significant scheduled event.  In the fall of 1918, classes were suspended for five weeks due to the Spanish Influenza epidemic; in addition, all extra-curricular activities were cancelled, and many facilities at the old Fairview campus were converted into hospital wards for flu patients.  During the Second World War, fuel shortages which restricted the use of cars by students forced the closure of UBC and cancellation of classes for five days in January 1943.

Opening hours will be reduced at the University Archives, as well as at Rare Books and Special Collections, effective 30 July 2012. Until 31 August, the Archives will be open to the public 10am-4pm, Monday-Friday.

Please contact University Archivist Chris Hives with any concerns about University Archives accessibility.
