Last year, UBC Library joined its partners (SFU, BCIT, KPU and Douglas College) in organizing a series of free events for Science Literacy Week and created a Library Guide to Science Literacy Week too. In previous years, UBC Library celebrated Science Literacy Week along with 140+ organizations across Canada and hosted a Wikipedia edit-a-thon, a Science Expo, and a Living Library of graduate students who could be “borrowed” like books to talk about their inspiring research, and more.

In anticipation of Science Literacy Week happening 17-23 September 2018, you can also enjoy listening to a round of Frequencies podcasts including transcripts (courtesy of the UBC Okanagan Library) recorded at last year’s Science Literary Week event. This unique series is one that “explores the connections between science and society: the implications of scientific research on our culture, how scientists communicate their ideas, and how our society responds”.

Also, stay tuned for the soon-to-be-released “Science Literacy Week: Building Partnerships through a Passion for Discovery” (a conference paper co-authored by UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan librarians) arriving in cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository via UBC Library’s Open Collections portal.
