In this month’s issue of LibFOCUS, we reflect on the past year, explore digital collections and look at changes in the New Year.
This year was milestone for UBC Library, marked by a number of achievements and celebrations. Some of the highlights include:
The Library Preservation and Archives (Library PARC) facility broke ground in May, and is scheduled for completion in 2015. This facility will accommodate future collections growth, and free up physical space at library branches.
cIRcle, the University’s institutional digital repository, was accessed from nearly every country in the world. It’s collection of research recently expanded to include the BIRS lecture series – a massive 1,000 lecture mathematical video archive.
2015 marks the 100th anniversary of UBC Library – we hope you will join us in celebrating in the New Year. Read more
