cIRcle, UBC’s information repository, celebrated a special milestone at the end of January when the 30,000th record was added to its holdings.

In 2008, UBC Library launched cIRcle, which serves as the digital archive of UBC’s intellectual output. It features published and unpublished materials created at UBC, and it is openly accessible – meaning that it is freely available online. Some highlights of cIRcle’s collection include UBC material related to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, along with several thousand recent UBC theses and disserations, and nearly 24,000 older theses, as part of the UBC Retrospective Theses project.

The 30,000th record to join the cIRcle collection is a Chemistry Ph.D. thesis entitled The chemistry of thujone: the synthesis of rose oil components and germacrane analogues. In the past week, it has been viewed by users in countries including Canada, the U.S., the United Kingdom, India and Russia.
