Originating in Southwest China, tea is now one of the most popular drinks in the world. It is served differently from country to country. Visit our latest book display and explore the Asian Library collection on tea, its origin, history and culture.

The display is located at the Asian Centre foyer and will be up until March 7.

Our new Collection Spotlight is up. Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day is February 26, 2020.  The theme this year is ‘Lift Each Other Up.’

On February 11, UBC Library hosted a one-day workshop by renowned Japanese conservator Kazunori Oryū, who presented on Japanese scroll mounting and bookbinding in conservation. More than forty participants were in attendance, including local and out-of-town conservators, paper and print artists, members of Japanese heritage and cultural organizations, and UBC students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

In the workshop, Mr. Oryū not only outlined the basics of the structures and aesthetics of Japanese heritage materials as related to conservation, but also reported on his involvement as a technical supervisor in the multi-year rescue efforts for paper-based resources damaged during last October’s typhoon at the Kawasaki City Museum. Mr. Oryū also provided step-by-step demonstrations of how to handle heritage materials properly, and gave detailed explanations about preservation and conservation processes and techniques, using sample materials.

In the words of a participant, “thank you… for offering this fascinating event and for opening it up to the conservation community. Opportunities like this are rare.”

Mr. Oryū also met with library employees the following day to examine items from UBC Library’s own Japanese rare collections. He provided invaluable guidance with regards to the ongoing conservation needs of the items that were shown, and also espoused general strategies that could be used to care for the materials.

We are grateful to Mr. Oryū for sharing his time and expertise, and to Sheldon Armstrong, AUL Collections, for sponsoring this event.

You’ve heard the expression, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”  Come by the library and see what happens when you put it into practice!

Please join us for this very fun and very mysterious UBC Education Library Collection Spotlight event.  “Blind Date with a Book” will feature titles of various themes and genres.  The undercover books will be totally wrapped with only a few clues written on the outside.  Are you looking for a “Blind Date with a Short Story?” or perhaps a “Blind Date with a Book of Poetry?”  There will be a multitude of books to choose from.  Come by and take a mystery book home today!

This special Spotlight runs from February 7-19, 2020.

The UBC Library exhibition explores the stories of the men and women who collected, recorded and brought forth evidence of the atrocities of Auschwitz, giving testimony of the events that took place there. The exhibit runs until February 28 on Level 2 of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
