Tributes to Irving K. Barber and Basil Stuart-Stubbs, an overview of UBC Library’s surge in the latest Association of Research Libraries rankings, Twitter and cIRcle success, and more appear in the latest edition of the BCLA Browser, the online, open access publication of the British Columbia Library Association. The article, UBC Library – Fall Update, highlights recent activity:

  • @UBCLibrary was recently ranked as one of top three influential Twitter accounts in North America, according to a study performed by librarian Willie Miller of Indiana University.
  • an updated copyright website has been launched by UBC in response to the changing copyright environment in Canada, and includes copyright resources for UBC faculty and staff
  • UBC Library jumped in the annual rankings of academic institutions, according to the latest results from the U.S.-based Association of Research Libraries (ARL)

A second article in the BCLA Browser, by Administrative Librarian Emeritus Margaret Friesen, examines the question, “What is an assessment librarian?”

Copyright symbolUBC has launched an updated copyright website, found at copyright.ubc.ca, in response to the changing copyright environment in Canada.

Highlights include:

Users are encouraged to visit the University’s copyright site to understand the issues and plan accordingly. Content will be updated regularly, and is maintained by the Office of the Provost and VP Academic, UBC Library, UBC Bookstore, the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (Vancouver), the Centre for Teaching and Learning (Okanagan) and the Office of the University Counsel.

For more assistance, please refer to an extensive list of contacts at UBC’s Vancouver and Okanagan campuses.
