The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre : how did we get here and where are we going? Singh, Sandra


Presented by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS) Colloquium Series, The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, which is part of the UBC Library system, has an intriguing and ambitious mission relating to its physical geography and that of the province of BC. As part of a vast campus community, the Learning Centre is charged with a mandate to support academic excellence by providing diverse learning and teaching supports as well as inspiring people spaces. Dedicated to the prosperity of the province and to integrating community into our work here on campus, we also look outward, searching for opportunities to connect and support connections between UBC and communities across BC. How does all this fit within the traditional role of the academic library? Does it or is the Learning Centre an entirely different entity with simply an administrative connection to the UBC Library? Join Learning Centre Director Sandra Singh as she discusses the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, its mission and activities, and its place on both the University campus generally and within the context of the UBC Library. Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. (PowerPoint version here: http://tiny.cc/ikblc396)
