Nursing History Symposium 2018 Review

On March 8th, 2018, the “In Search of Nursing’s History” symposium was co-hosted by Woodward Library, the School of Nursing’s Consortium of Nursing History, and BC’s History of Nursing Society at Woodward Library.

The morning began with Dr. Geertje Boschma, professor in UBC School of Nursing and Katherine Miller, Nursing Librarian greeting the 36 guests gathered to learn more about how UBC Library and Archives are supporting UBC and community researchers on the history of nursing.

Aleteia Greenwood opened the presentations with a brief history of the library, amalgamation of branches through the years and unique collections. She also highlighted the contributions of Lee Ann Bryant, former Nursing Librarian. This was followed by a panel presentation and conversation with:

  • Amber Saundry, Digital Repository Librarian gave a presentation written in collaboration with Larissa Ringham, UBC Digital Projects Librarian, “Preserving Nursing and Health History in a Time of Digitization and Open Collections”
  • Krisztina Laszlo, Archivist UBC Library Rare Books and Special Collections shared about “Archival Records and Nursing History”,

After the panel presentations, guests engaged with the Woodward Library’s spaces and nursing history resources collections and artifacts with a “Walkabout”. In the Charles Woodward Memorial Room, two display cases contain nursing history artifacts from infant feeders to Ethel Johns’ nursing medals. In the display case next to the Memorial Room, the Consortium for Nursing History and UBC School of Nursing displayed a visual history of the School of Nursing from 1900s until 1990s. The McKechnie Room hosted a display of books from Xwi7xwa and Woodward Libraries, a poster by Katherine Miller “Collections and Research Services”, a display of new books published by UBC Press on nursing history, and a booth from the Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry at UBC Vancouver.
