An exciting new fund has arrived just in time for the kick-off of the 2019 fall semester at the University of British Columbia – it’s called the “UBC Scholarly Publication Fund”.

 

This new fund, provided by the University’s Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation (VPRI) and administered by the UBC Library, will soon “assist UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan faculty members [alike] with the costs of scholarly publication”.

 

It will help offset some scholarly publishing costs imposed by publishers and academic presses nowadays. While most researchers, especially early career faculty in the humanities and social sciences, aim to make their scholarly works as openly accessible and/or with as little publishing cost(s) as possible, they face added fees for enhanced images, tables, figures, copyrighted materials, or special production elements.

In recognition of UBC’s Centennial year, UBC Library and emeritus Tom Shorthouse are excited to announce the release of Golden Scrapbook: The Centennial Update 1965-2015. This extensive publication maps 50 years at UBC Library, highlighting personal accounts from University Librarians, milestones in the library’s history, and anecdotes from library employees past and present. Complimented by colour photographs of library employees, library spaces and events from the past 50 years, the scrapbook profiles the growth and development of the library, and follows the Scrapbook for a Golden Anniversary produced in 1966, also compiled by Tom Shorthouse, and published by the Morriss Printing Company.

Read the digital version of the new Golden Scrapbook below. Hard copies of the publication will be available to borrow from the library beginning in early October, and a one copy will be held permanently in the University Librarian office wing. One copy will also be placed in the Centennial time capsule. To make an appointment to view the scrapbook in advance of the availability of the circulation copies, please email Jasmine Devonshire.

UBC Library has undertaken a series of stakeholder surveys and consultations to update our strategic plan. These have resulted in the UBC Library Strategic Plan (2015 – 2017). The Library’s plan is informed by Place and Promise: The UBC Plan and by the needs and views of the diverse communities we serve. 

We invite you to explore the Goals and Key Actions of our plan through each of the five strategic directions.
