University Librarian
UBC Library will be a provincial, national and international leader in
the development, provision and delivery of outstanding information
resources and services that are essential to learning, research and the
creation of knowledge at UBC and beyond.
The past year at UBC Library was defined by significant
changes and developments. Throughout, the contributions
of our dedicated and talented staff ensured that the Library
continued to provide high-quality resources and services
for its diverse user base at UBC and beyond.
Mission Statement: The Library is an
active and integral partner with students,
faculty and staff in realizing the mission
of the University. Library staff develop,
organize and manage the infrastructure,
services and access to knowledge, ideas
and information that are critical in a University dedicated to distinctive learning,
outstanding teaching and leading-edge
research. The Library serves and collaborates with a large and diverse community:
first, the students, faculty and staff of UBC,
and, as resources allow, individuals and
institutions throughout British Columbia,
Canada and the rest of the world.
Furthering Learning and Research
2004-2007, P.6
A number of organizational changes were implemented at
UBC Library during the reporting period, including the
appointment of an Interim Deputy University Librarian to
manage the Library's day-to-day operations. Certainly,
instituting change at any organization can be a daunting
prospect. However, the progress made thus far is a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our staff,
and I would like to thank the Library's employees for their
participation. It is their efforts that continue to bolster the
Library's standing and enhance UBC's reputation as a
leading research-intensive institution.
That said, the 2005 rankings from the Association of
Research Libraries placed UBC Library at 24, a slight decline
compared to the previous year's ranking of 22 (UBC's
highest rank ever). This is a timely reminder that despite
the Library's many efforts and accomplishments, we
cannot afford to be complacent and must continue to
strive to offer the best resources and services possible.
However, there have been other encouraging results. For
example, UBC Library received a grade of "A" in The Globe
and Mail's 2005 University Report Card, one of only two
Canadian university libraries to receive such a mark.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   oi Message from the University Librarian
UBC has also welcomed a new leader. In March, the University announced the
appointment of Stephen Toope as its 12th President and Vice-Chancellor. He
replaces Martha Piper, who served in those roles for the past nine years. Professor
Toope previously served as President of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation,
whose mission statement notes that the group "seeks to promote outstanding
research in the social sciences and humanities, and to foster a fruitful dialogue
between scholars and policymakers in government, business, the voluntary sector,
the professions and the arts community."
Professor Toope's commitment to outreach and research complements the ambitions of UBC Library, the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and the University as a
whole. We are excited about the arrival of Professor Toope and look forward to
working with him to make UBC one of the best universities in the world.
I would like to thank Martha Piper for her tireless efforts and enthusiasm that
defined her time at UBC. Martha was an inspiring leader and her support for an
array of Library initiatives - from the development of the Irving K. Barber Learning
Centre to the annual Authors' Reception - was invaluable.
The launch of UBC Okanagan (UBCO), which officially opened in September 2005,
was another momentous occasion during this reporting period. This new Kelowna
campus, whose predecessor was Okanagan University College, has brought together
many new students, faculty and employees, and its Library has an important role to
play in ensuring the organization's success. The supportive relationship between
the Vancouver and Kelowna campuses allows their respective libraries to remain
autonomous yet benefit from the resources and services that each has to offer. We
look forward to the many successes that surely lie ahead for UBC Okanagan.
Certainly, the development of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre has continued to
inspire our work. Phase one of the Learning Centre officially opened in October
2005; its highlights include the impressive Ridington Room and the first automated
storage and retrieval system in a Canadian library. Phase one also serves as the
home for Fine Arts, Science and Engineering, University Archives, and Rare Books
and Special Collections. Meanwhile, construction crews have been busy refurbishing the historic core of the Main Library and completing the new south wing in
preparation for the opening of phase two of the Learning Centre, scheduled to take
place in late 2007. Much work will continue to be devoted to developing programs
and services that will enable this facility to serve, in the words of Dr. Irving K. Barber,
as a "21st-century Learning Centre for British Columbians and, indeed, the world."
02   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate I would like to thank all employees of UBC Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning
Centre for their contributions during this reporting period, and I look forward to
working with them to meet the challenges and enjoy the opportunities that lie

Managing Director, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   03 People
UBC Library recognizes that its staff are its most important res
in supporting research and learning. It places a high priority on
providing an environment conducive to effective study learning and
community building.
Organizational change was a theme during this
reporting period. In 2005, Einblau & Associates carried out a
survey of UBC Library employees. This step was taken in
response to a recommendation made in 2003 by the Library
Review Committee, which recommended that "an outside
consultant be commissioned to study the organization's
culture, including job satisfaction."
UBC recognizes that its staff- librarians, management & professional staff,
support staff and student staff-are its
most important resource in supporting
the research and learning needs of the
UBC community. The Library is committed to attracting and retaining excellent
staff at all levels, and to providing them
with the training and development they
need to fulfil their responsibilities. It is
also committed to providing for its users
the physical facilities conducive to an
effective learning and study environment and to maintaining and upgrading these. Through a series of faculty
and departmental advisory committees,
through periodic surveys and through
an online feedback system, the Library
listens and responds to the concerns of
its primary users - the students, faculty
and staff of UBC.
Furthering Learning and Research
2004-2007, p.11
The survey focused on four areas: leadership and development, management practices, collaboration and cooperation, and mutual respect. Responses came from various
groups, including clerical, administrative and systems staff,
library assistants, librarians, branch/division heads and
managers, and assistant university librarians.
Library staff received a memorandum on the survey's
results near the end of August from the Vice President
Academic and Provost. At the beginning of December, the
Vice President Academic announced changes intended to
improve the Library's working environment.
These changes included the creation of the position of
Interim Deputy University Librarian, a role that assumes
responsibility for the day-to-day management of Library
operations, in coordination with the University Librarian
and the Vice President Academic. Peter Ward was appointed
as the Interim Deputy University Librarian; he previously
served as Associate Dean in the Faculty of Arts and was a
member of several Library committees.
04   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate In coordination with the University President and the Vice President Academic, the
University Librarian's role has continued to focus on strategic issues facing UBC
Library, including its long-term vision, the development of the Irving K. Barber
Learning Centre and its many resources and services, and the cultivation of strong
relationships with the Library's valuable constituency of friends and donors.
The Library's Human Resources department organized a number of events focused
on acknowledging the accomplishments of Library employees, such as the annual
Library staff barbecue and retirement functions. As well, the department encouraged
Library honorees and their colleagues to attend UBC's 25 Year Club dinner and the
Quarter Century Club celebrations.
The launch of UBC Okanagan has resulted in a significant amount of training and
collaboration between library units on campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna. Many
steps have been taken, such as ensuring the representation of UBC Okanagan staff on
Library committees and the meshing of policies and procedures between the two
campuses. UBC Okanagan Library is led by Melody Burton, who joined the organization as its head in 2005. Further details about UBC Okanagan and its Library are
provided in the Learning and Research section.
As part of the organizational changes, a consultant was hired to assist the senior management team and develop an internal communications plan. The Library spent a
significant amount of time in the last year working to strengthen the flow of communication between staff, management and various divisions. It is hoped that this
strategy will enhance the provision of information to staff and lead to useful dialogue on various issues. Some of these communication strategies included town halls
on the budget, sessions for staff in specific branches on current topics and the
beginnings of a revamped staff website.
Broader communication efforts were also important during the reporting period. The
Library continued to participate in the new faculty and graduate student orientations.
It hosted an alumni tour of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and participated in
provincial, national and international committees. In November, UBC became the new
home of the Secretariat for the Pacific Rim Digital Library Alliance (PRDLA), with the
University Librarian becoming Chair of the Steering Committee, a role previously held
by the University of Hong Kong. The goal of PRDLA is to foster improved user access to
scholarly research materials, mainly via digital means. PRDLA has accepted open
access as the standard for its digitized collections. The alliance has more than 30 members, hailing from countries including China, Singapore, Korea, Australia, New Zealand
and the United States. UBC is the sole Canadian member.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   05 People
The Library relied on advisory groups composed of staff, faculty and students from
many of UBC's faculties and schools to discuss key issues on behalf of their constituencies. This input is highly valued, and the advisory groups met throughout the year
to discuss collection budgets, storage and access issues, opening hours and other
The University Librarian and the President's Office co-sponsored the Sixteenth
Annual Authors' Reception. The event, held at the Life Sciences Atrium, featured titles
published by UBC scholars, including current and retired professors and staff. The
memorable reception was an opportunity for Martha Piper to make one of her last
public appearances before stepping down as President of UBC. President Piper has
been a tireless advocate for the reception during her tenure, and University Librarian
Catherine Quinlan thanked her for her efforts.
External communication efforts helped raise the profile of UBC Library and the
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. These included publishing newsletters, coordinating press releases, producing large posters for the Learning Centre and cultivating
media interest in the Library and Learning Centre. During the reporting period,
articles about Library and Learning Centre developments appeared in a variety of
publications including The Vancouver Sun, The Province, Business in Vancouver and
V6T Community News.
Library Staff
UBC Library experienced a number of staffing changes during the reporting period.
The Library funded an Early Retirement Program for Library CUPE 2950 staff, which
was accepted by seven employees. In addition, three librarians retired. This resulted
in the Library offering congratulations and best wishes to the following staff: Mira
Blazicevic, Rare Books & Special Collections; Gaylia Cardona, Technical Services;
Linda Chiu, Technical Services; Kathy Chu, Technical Services; Elsa Dickson, Circulation, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre; Puran Gill, Asian Library; Dan Heino, Woodward Biomedical Library; Theresa Iverson, Fine Arts; Nick Omelusik, Humanities
and Social Sciences and Law Library; Seta Yeterian, Humanities and Social Sciences.
During the reporting period, a number of new positions were established and
existing ones reconfigured, including: Administrator, University Librarian's Office;
Communications & Marketing Officer; Development Coordinator; Fine Arts
Librarian; Head, UBC Okanagan Library; Indie Languages Librarian (50%); Interim
Deputy University Librarian; Interim Finance Manager; Learning Services Librarian,
UBC Okanagan Library; Library Assistant F, Rare Books & Special Collections; Major
06   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Gifts Officer; Manager, Development; MD Undergraduate Liaison Librarian; Office
and Circulation Manager, Education Library; Physiotherapy Outreach Librarian,
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre; Reference Librarian (Pharmacy Liaison), Woodward Biomedical Library; Xwi7xwa Librarian.
Library staff recognized for their long-term service to the University through their
induction into the 25 Year Club or Quarter Century Club included: Bob Hill, Borrower Services; Lotte Illichmann, Library Administration; Pat Lew, Law Library;
Sharon Mowat, Copy Services; Jennifer Rogers, Technical Services; Arlene Schmidt,
Technical Services; Helen Tse, Technical Services; and Patrick Willoughby, Humanities and Social Sciences.
Staff inducted into the 35 Year Club or the Quarter Century Club - Tempus Fugit
(35 years) included: Margaret Friesen, Humanities and Social Sciences; and Thom
Geise, Music Library.
Further details about staff changes are listed in Appendix A: Library Staff.
Staff Training and Development
Training continued to be a key focus for the Library, underlining the organization's
commitment to provide staff with opportunities to improve skills, acquire new
competencies and keep up-to-date with the latest developments.
A new framework was established for funding library professional development.
New guidelines and criteria for funding professional development activities were
approved in March 2005, and the program was launched in April 2005.
The Library's teaching and learning program for staff totalled 1,735 participants at
379 training sessions, presented by more than 75 Library trainers.
In total, 171 requests were funded for individual activities. These included 95 approvals for librarians, 17 for management and professional staff, and 59 for library
assistants/CUPE 2950 staff (the majority of these latter requests were funded from
UBC's Job Skills Training Program).
Library professional development expenditures totalling $70,000 and Job Skills
Training Program funds totalling $11,000 were approved. The programs funded
46 events involving travel, online/webcast courses and local conferences/workshops
on a wide range of topics supporting the development of knowledge and skills.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   07 People
In addition to individual activities, the program sponsored several group events,
including a third session on the application of the CUPE 2950 contract, four New
Student Assistant Orientation workshops and three Performance Management
Other events included two Library Trends workshops, Library-wide open houses that
took place at 13 sites, and forums on the United Nations publications collections
policy, institutional repository, functional requirements for bibliographic records,
data library services and Google Scholar.
The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (SLAIS)/UBC Library Distinguished Speakers Series was held at St. John's College. Guests featured at this series
included Michael Geist and Heather Joseph, whose talks were entitled "Canada's
Choice: Copyright, Culture and the Internet" and "SPARC Futures," respectively. The
Library also collaborated with SLAIS to sponsor the SLAIS/UBC Library Colloquia,
which dealt with a wide range of topics including libraries and open access, archival
description, and indexing and information needs.
In summary, 82% of all training activities took place in-house and were sponsored,
designed and/or delivered by Library staff. In addition to the above-mentioned events,
the following attracted more than 1,100 participants: eLibrary Committee presentations; Graduate Academic Assistant orientations; Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
Liaison Group updates; Information/Reference/Instruction workshops; Technical
Services/Systems sessions; UBC Okanagan sessions; and vendors' presentations.
The primary training venues on campus were Continuing Studies, Organizational
Training and Development (MOST courses) and the Centre for Teaching and Academic Growth (TAG).
In addition to attending sessions on campus, librarians and other staff members
taught courses at TAG and SLAIS, and provided in-person demonstrations and
consultations at University-wide orientation sessions and other campus venues. The
Library also organized and hosted training sessions for librarians in British Columbia
Electronic Library Network libraries.
Mary Luebbe, UBC Library's Data Services Librarian, received the Diana Lukin Johnston Award for 2005/06. This award was established by Derek Lukin Johnston, a long-
term benefactor of the Library, in memory of his wife, who was an avid reader and
supporter of libraries. The purpose of the award is to enable professionals or those
studying to become professional librarians to take advantage of professional development opportunities. Ms. Luebbe applied her award to attending a Statistics Canada
08   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Data Liberation Initiative course at the University of Saskatchewan and the biennial
meeting for official representatives of the Inter-University Consortium for Political
and Social Research at the University of Michigan.
Health, Safety and Security
The Library continued to emphasize the importance of health and safety in the
workplace and to offer programs to staff that support personal wellness. Library
health and safety groups met regularly to review the physical work environment
and recommend improvements aimed at eliminating the potential for accident and
injury in an effort to continue the Library's low rates of accidents and time lost due
to injury. Many staff continued to participate in the UBC-sponsored Health Symposium, the UBC Safety Week program and various fitness initiatives, including yoga
and Tai Chi. In December 2005, the Library offered its annual flu shot clinic, with 47
staff participating.
The Library underwent a health, safety and environmental compliance audit, a
process that is required of every department at UBC periodically and one that is a
component of UBC's Environmental Program.
A secure, late-hours study environment was ensured, thanks to a collaboration with
the Alma Mater Society for the provision of Safewalk services to students and staff,
and the hiring of additional Campus Patrol staff. The Library funded the extension
of UBC Campus Security bus-operating hours to provide safe rides to residence and
parking areas. The service was for staff who worked late night shifts and for students
during the extended hours pilot programs at Koerner and Woodward libraries.
Ergonomic risk assessments continued for staff workstations across the Library,
including those at the automated storage and retrieval system, with recommendations implemented to improve the work environment.
An orientation program for new student employees was developed and delivered
during the beginning of the 2005/06 academic year. A total of 135 new student
Library employees attended the September orientation sessions. Content included
an introduction to UBC and TREK 2010, the University's strategic plan; an introduction to UBC Library, featuring general information and the Library's strategic plan;
and student/employee roles and responsibilities with respect to key UBC policies
regarding information technology, safety and the working environment. Since this
program's implementation in the fall for students, its content has been integrated
into the Library's new employee orientation for all staff.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   09 People
The orientation program is complemented by the New Worker Orientation Handbook, compiled by the Library's Human Resources department and available in all
Library branches.
Library Facilities
The Library took many steps to improve facilities for the benefit of its users and staff.
A new circulation desk and new cabinets to shelve oversize music scores were installed
at the Music Library. In addition, 23 tables, 100 chairs and 14 study carrels replaced the
worn furniture (circa 1967) in public areas. A rearrangement made room for an informal
seating area with easy chairs, where patrons can read new journals and consult reference
books. This spacious and inviting new look has prompted many positive comments
from patrons and staff.
The workspace at St. Paul's Hospital Library was improved thanks to updated wiring,
new ergonomic workstations and a reconfiguration of staff workspace. Meanwhile, the
security gate at Hamber Library was replaced with a wheelchair-accessible model.
During the past year, Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) received a laptop to provide
better access to instruction for Arts Outreach programs, while a CD-ROM workstation
enhanced access to HSS collections.
Two computers and two workstations were added to the David Lam Library at the Sauder
School of Business, which helped reduce waiting times for users. The Law Library
acquired furnishings for a new meeting/seminar room, as well as new chairs for a moot
preparation room and PhD study carrels. Science and Engineering received a laptop and
video projector, which are essential for classroom presentations that are held outside of
the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
Access to collections and resources was enhanced due to the addition of computer
workstations and related technology at various libraries. The migration of all staff
workstations from NT to XP was completed.
Planning for the Academic Ambulatory Care Centre (AACC), a public-private partnership
project, was intense during this year. The UBC Faculty of Medicine worked closely with a
number of stakeholders during this period, including the AACC Space Planning Office,
architects and the contractors for the new building. UBC Library, under the direction of
the University Librarian and librarians reporting to her, also participated in the long- and
short-term planning for the new UBC Biomedical Branch (BMB) Library. The BMB Library
is housed in the new AACC, which was subsequently named the Gordon and Leslie
Diamond Health Care Centre.
10   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Learning and Research
UBC Library is committed to supporting the learning and research
needs of its users through the acquisition of information resources and
ensuring access to resources beyond the campus. It provides instruction
and training to help them develop the information seeking and critical
thinking skills required to succeed in their studies and as members of a
knowledge intensive society.
UBC Library is committed to supporting the learning and research needs
of undergraduate students, graduate
students, faculty and staff. It does so
through the acquisition, provision and
preservation of information resources
locally, in print, electronic and other
formats, and through access to information resources beyond the campus. It
provides instruction and training (e.g.
individual, group, Web-based) to help
students develop the information seeking and critical thinking skills required to
succeed in their studies and as members
of a knowledge intensive society. It works
withfaculty students and staff to find,
develop and effectively use the information resources they require for the
creation and transmission of knowledge.
In addition, the Library provides the
infrastructure and technology to support and deliver information resources,
it provides bibliographic access to and
information about them through its
online catalogue and other indexes, and
it manages the physical flow of resources
to and from Library users, whether on
campus or at a distance.
Furthering Learning and Research
2004-2007, P.13
One of UBC Library's main goals is to provide
Library users with the skills needed to find information
efficiently and evaluate it critically, a key task given the
university's research-intensive agenda. As a result, the
Library supports learning and research in many ways. Staff
members answer questions at the reference and information desks, respond to e-mail enquiries, engage users in live
electronic chat and instant messaging, create electronic and
in-person tutorials in response to user requests and needs,
and provide ongoing Library instruction. In addition to
serving a growing student base, the Library also strives to
serve a growing community of users registered in certificate
programs, distance education programs, executive programs, continuing studies programs and other initiatives.
During 2005/06, Library staff answered 225,716 questions in
person, by telephone or by e-mail. This figure represents a
decrease of approximately 8% from the previous year. At
the same time, the Library offered information skills
instructional programs. Library staff presented 1,462
sessions on a variety of library-related resources and
services to 26,204 students and faculty. Included in these
sessions were 16 training sessions for RefWorks, the web-
based bibliographic management software that has largely
supplanted EndNote bibliographic software. While there are
other bibliographic management tools, RefWorks has
become the software of choice for more than 5,000 UBC
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   n Learning and Research
users within a one-year period. Librarians spent significant time and effort providing individual research consultations with students and faculty, and their contributions are valued.
Beyond the Library, staff presented 15 sessions to 480 participants at the Centre for
Teaching and Academic Growth (TAG), the University Wide Orientation and the
SLAIS/Library Colloquia.
Humanities and Social Sciences staff presented 27 sessions to 315 participants in the
Faculty of Arts Outreach program. Some of these were RefWorks sessions, others provided instruction in information literacy. The funding provided by the Faculty of
Arts for the program is much appreciated. The Library continues to contribute to
WebCT tutorials, primarily in the science, engineering and life sciences disciplines.
Nearly 24,000 records were added to the UBC Library catalogue for some of its
major e-book collections, significantly enhancing access and resulting in increased
round-the-clock consultation of Library materials. From digitized historical texts to
born-digital technical reports, this growing area of the Library's collection offers
exciting new desktop research possibilities. With an Internet connection, any UBC
researcher on any continent, in any time zone, has access to these titles when
needed. In the coming year, the Library will continue to add records for titles in both
existing and new e-book sets.
A "More About This" button was added to the online catalogue for full records that
include ISBNs. The button spawns a pop-up window containing links to outside
information resources and services, such as information provided by online booksellers, the availability of items at other local libraries and web-based price comparison utilities. This development provides users with additional information that is
relevant and item-specific. The new link also directs users to alternative sources for
borrowing or purchasing a desired item to ensure timely access.
The Library conducted extended-hours pilot projects in Woodward and Koerner
libraries in support of the April and December exam periods. Gina Eom, a Student
Senator and member of the Senate Library Committee, spearheaded the initiative
for extended hours, and a funding commitment from the Vice President Academic's
Office for this purpose is in place to December 2006.
Funding was also acquired to support the information needs of students in the
Faculty of Medicine's undergraduate distributed program.
12   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate UBC Library joined the Open Content Alliance, a group of worldwide organizations
helping to build a permanent archive of multilingual, digitized text and multimedia
content. UBC faculty, graduate students and research staff were surveyed about their
knowledge of, and interest in, open access publishing, and the Library participated in
the Open Canada Digitization Initiative, a program to digitize Canada's information
and knowledge resources.
In January, a celebration was held at the First Nations Longhouse on the UBC campus
to welcome Xwi7xwa Library as a branch of the UBC Library system. Becoming a
branch has been a goal of Xwi7xwa since its opening in 1993, and one that was
achieved thanks to the efforts of many and the support of President Martha Piper.
When Xwi7xwa began, it held a small collection of materials. Today, it holds thousands of items, including books, videos, journals, newspapers, theses, archives and
more. It also features a unique classification system tailored for Aboriginal collections.
A variety of displays was offered by UBC Library throughout the year, including the
Faculty of Education Research Day; Scholars in Residence; Pacific Perspectives: UBC
Authors & their Works, 2005; and Five Centuries of City Maps. In addition, UBC
Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre presented a poster session entitled
Bits and Bytes: eResources, eLearning and eArchives at UBC's eLearning Open House.
UBC Okanagan
The creation of UBC Okanagan in Kelowna marks the advent of an exciting venture
for UBC and its Library system. On July 1,2005, UBC Library grew in a new and
significant way when it welcomed the addition of UBC Okanagan Library.
Prior to the launch of UBC Okanagan, many Library staff and administrators from
Vancouver and Kelowna were actively involved in the transition from Okanagan
University College's (OUC) north campus library to UBC Okanagan Library. Their
efforts were critical for the success of this transition.
A key factor of UBC Okanagan Library's successful opening was the migration
from an existing OUC library catalogue to UBC Library's system. The result was a
merged and shared catalogue with common patron files and policy matrices. Other
examples of integration included the extension of licences of UBC Vancouver
electronic resources to UBC Okanagan and the development and refinement of
reciprocal borrowing of print resources between the Vancouver and Kelowna
campuses. In addition, interlibrary loan fees between UBC Vancouver and UBC
Okanagan were harmonized.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   13 Learning and Research
UBC Okanagan champions an intimate learning environment for students and its
Library models this goal. The Library is integrated administratively within the UBC
Okanagan Learning Services portfolio. This mandate ensures close and meaningful
collaboration between the Library and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and
Research, IT Services and Continuing Education.
Information Resources and Collections
Similar to several preceding years, the University assigned a flat budget for acquisitions. Yet also as in recent years, the purchasing power of the budget was strengthened due to the Canadian dollar's growth in value, which increased the spending
power of the funds available. However, the dollar's increased spending power meant
that the acquisitions budget was not entirely spent. This, combined with smaller-
than-expected expenditures on subscriptions for print and electronic resources,
resulted in unspent funds at year end. UBC Okanagan Library has a separate budget,
and staff there succeeded in spending nearly 100% of their acquisitions budget
despite the fact that their fiscal year did not run for a full 12 months.
A number of new online and print materials were acquired. The most expensive item
was the US Serial Set from LexisNexis. This online resource, and another instalment
of U.S. Government Printing Office microfiche documents, augment the Library's
partial set of U.S. government documents and provide needed resources for students
of American studies and other subjects. Other new online resources included e-
journal backfiles for agriculture, chemistry, nursing, geoscience, Chinese-language
titles, Nature Research titles and the New York Review of Books. Earlier in the year, the
Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) negotiated for a number of online
materials in humanities and social sciences, many of which UBC Library already had.
However, the Library obtained three major new sets: ARTStor, Sage e-journals and
historical documents from Alexander Street Press. The latter includes the Smithsonian Global Sound audio resource.
Other new full-text e-resources were purchased, including the Canadian Journal of
Chemistry (1951-1997), Communication & Mass Media Complete, FIRSTConsult, GLBT
Life with Full Text, Asia Studies Full Text Online, Compendium of Pharmaceuticals
and Specialties (CPS), PsycBooks and U.S. serial set. Acquisitions of new online
resources included Access Science, CABI, Contemporary Authors, Contemporary
Literary Criticism, Current Biography, Dictionary of Literary Biography, GeoScience
World, Nature Clinical Practice and QP LegalEze.
The Library piloted free e-journal hosting with two open access titles - Transnational Curriculum Inquiry: The Journal of the International Association for the
14   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Advancement of Curriculum Studies, and New Proposals: Journal of Marxism and
Interdisciplinary Inquiry.
Librarians across the system are increasingly interested in acquiring e-books, and
some of the monograph allocation was spent on online books. Costs vary widely and
budgeting is challenging because the method of payment varies from a large onetime payment combined with a small hosting fee to annual licensing fees. In order to
provide access to individual e-books, the Library adds records to the catalogue for
each e-book, some of which are supplied by the publisher. For example, the Library
added thousands of records to the catalogue, thanks to records provided by the
publishers of Early English Books Online and Eighteenth Century Collections Online.
Both of these resources were acquired late in 2004/05; they have been available for
decades in microform format.
Fine Arts obtained a facsimile of the Ashburnham Pentateuch, a useful curriculum
addition for the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory. The Asian Library
obtained microfilm backfiles of Choson Ilbo (The Korea Daily News), and the Humanities and Social Sciences Division acquired the first instalment of a microfilm set
entitled Latin American Twentieth Century Pamphlets.
Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) benefited from an increased acquisitions
budget as well as from donors' gifts of materials. New collections included the first
three of five instalments of a major collection of Canadian literature. The collection
was created by Professor W.H. New to help in his writing of the Encyclopedia of
Literature in Canada (University of Toronto Press, 2002). The eventual total for this
collection will exceed 6,000 books. An important collection from the Vancouver
Medical Association on the history of medicine was acquired and will reside at the
Woodward Biomedical Library. A London-based donor provided four incunabula, and
these important additions raised RBSCs incunabula total to 12. A rarity of Arctic
printing was received; it is one of six copies of a C.P. Cavafy poem entitled The God
Abandons Antony, written in 1911 and printed Christmas 1975 by Wil Hudson at Cape
Dorset on Baffin Island.
Other acquisitions included a small group of diverse B.C. maps from the late 1800s
featuring government survey maps from 1893 and guide maps from 1891; a file on
the Blue Lead Hydrolic Co. of Hixon Creek, B.C. (located near Quesnel) from 1890; a
small archive from B.C. artist Louis F. Tait including sketches of Stanley Park, Lynn
Valley and more from the 1930s; important additions to the Doukhobor collection;
and a rare Japanese-Canadian Community Directory dated 1941, just prior to the
Japanese-Canadian internment in 1942.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   15 Learning and Research
Near the end of the fiscal year, a working group was established to examine the value
to the University of the Library's extensive collection of online databases. The goal
is to identify titles that are core for the University and to create a matrix for ranking
non-core titles, as the cancellation of some lesser-needed materials would provide
the Library with budget flexibility. This effort responds to the 2005/06 target in
TREK 2010 that requires the Library to "determine UBC priorities in selecting and
subscribing to major online databases in all disciplines."
The automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) has had a large and positive
impact on collections management. No longer does the Library have to refuse gifts
of materials that require special environmental controls. Branch collections can be
honed to meet user needs, with material of lesser importance retained and easily
accessible in the ASRS, thereby freeing space for users. The Library's weeding policy
needs to be reviewed in light of the ASRS implementation, and priorities for moving
material into the ASRS need to be formalized. In addition, ASRS usage patterns need
to be examined to inform future directions, and more work remains to be done to
maximize the advantages of this unique storage facility for UBC and its sister
institutions. More information on the ASRS is featured in the Irving K. Barber
Learning Centre section.
The Library appreciates the financial support from faculties and departments across
campus for the purchase of materials. Funding assistance was received from the
Children's & Women's Health Centre of British Columbia, Centre for Korean Research,
IT Services, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Land & Food Systems,
Faculty of Medicine, Sauder School of Business, Department of English, Department
of History, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, and Department of
University Archives and Records Management Services
Last spring and summer, a significant amount of University Archives' attention was
devoted to preparing for, and participating in, the move of its collections and offices
from the south wing of Main Library to phase one of the Irving K. Barber Learning
Centre. While Archives' collections have now moved to their permanent home (the
bulk of the boxed textual material resides in the ASRS), staff offices are located in
temporary space on the second floor of the Learning Centre. With the completion of
the second phase of the Learning Centre, Archives staff will reside on the first floor of
the new building. In addition to new quarters, the Archives staff complement
increased during the year with the addition of a Digital Initiatives Librarian position.
16   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate As has been the case for the last several years, Archives staff have attempted to meet
the demands of acquiring, processing and providing access to new archival material
while developing digital resources designed to make more information available to
patrons on a continual basis. During the past year Archives participated in a variety
of digitization projects involving in-house materials as well as partnerships with on-
and off-campus partners.
University Archives developed a project that resulted in the digitization of more than
11,000 pages of the UBC student yearbook for the period 1915-1966. A partnership
with the Science Undergraduate Society allowed for the digitization of the complete
run of the Society's newspaper entitled The 432 (1987-2006). This resulted in the
addition of approximately 1,700 pages to the UBC Digitized Publications Project,
which provides online access to more than 55,000 pages of material.
In partnership with the Centre for Studies in Autobiography, Gender and Age (SAGA),
Archives digitized approximately 1,800 pages of diaries, reminiscences, autobiographies and correspondence records from notable women whose archival material is
held by UBC Library.
Archives continued to add online finding aids to its archival collections and currently
has more than 400 HTML documents that provide detailed access to its holdings.
Archives staff carried out a significant upgrade to ContentDM - the Library's digital
asset management software - and added several hundred new images to the online
digital database. Funding was provided by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre for a
project to digitize an important collection of Japanese maps from the Tokugawa
period and this will be undertaken and completed by the end of July 2006 (for more
information on this project, please see the Learning Centre section).
In addition to working on various archival projects, the new Digital Initiatives
Librarian was instrumental in constructing a portal to digitized British Columbia
historical resources, as well as leading pilot projects that resulted in the Library's
participation in the hosting of e-journals and an electronic thesis and dissertation
submission project.
In the area of institutional records/information management, University Archives
benefited from the first full year of the existence of a University Records Manager
position. Throughout the year the Records Manager responded to numerous wide-
ranging questions pertaining to records keeping and also conducted a number of site
visits to various units. While basic advice was provided without charge, Archives also
contracted to provide professional records management services for several units
requiring more extensive support.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   17 Learning and Research
Institutional records/information management will be critical in supporting all of
the principles embodied in TREK 2010. Archives will continue to participate in
advocating for the establishment of a University Records Centre that will allow for
the systematic and coordinated storage and timely destruction of records of temporary value, collaborate in the development of a coordinated program for records
management and Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy training, and
expand the tools available on the Archives website to assist those with responsibility
for maintaining University records.
Preservation and Digitization
A variety of digitization projects undertaken by University Archives on behalf of UBC
Library over the past year resulted in the creation of approximately 57,000 new
digital objects.
The preservation microfilming program produced a total of 39 reels and 154 fiche,
concentrating on preserving B.C. and UBC materials. The B.C. city directories project
now covers the period 1860-1980, and brings together directories housed in various
libraries across the province into one convenient set. Other projects included UBC
Reports, the Summer Ubyssey, Report of the University Librarian to Senate, and UBC
undergraduate and graduate theses and papers on B.C. history, forestry and education.
Collection Use and Access to Materials at Other Libraries
The total recorded use of Library resources during this reporting period decreased by
more than 13% to 3.34 million transactions. This figure includes circulation, renewals,
borrowing and lending transactions for interlibrary loans, and internal document
delivery services to the UBC community and teaching hospitals.
While use of print resources has decreased, this may have been mitigated by UBC
Library's investments in e-resources. Access to e-journals, e-books and other e-
resources has increased during the past four years. E-journal subscriptions alone
increased from 18,500 subscriptions to 31,133 subscriptions over this period, an
increase of 68%. In addition, by 2005/06, e-books grew to 254,961 from 738 in
2003/04, and numeric databases grew to 22,610 files from 7,268 files during that
same period.
During the past year, UBC Library removed the charge to deliver books and videos
between UBC libraries for faculty, staff and students. This trial project has been well
received, particularly by off-campus libraries that are now able to obtain books from
any other UBC library and have them delivered to their home library for use. The
trial period ends June 30,2007.
18   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate In addition, media-booking fees were discontinued for all users. UBC Library also
benefited from other interlibrary loan initiatives - please see the Learning Centre
section for further details.
Technology Infrastructure
UBC Library's information technology (IT) infrastructure and systems capacity were
reviewed and consolidated to simplify the deployment of new technology. The
Library successfully commissioned the Meridian system, which provides full life-
cycle e-resource management.
Meridian consolidates all information pertaining to e-resources management in one
place, facilitating effective selection, use and tracking of the Library's e-resources.
With Meridian in place, a public interface for e-resource (PIE) project was initiated to
re-design and enhance public interface access to the Library's e-resources.
Data synchronization and interfacing between the Library's integrated system
(Voyager) and the ASRS were carried out. This enabled users' requests submitted
through the online catalogue to be seamlessly retrieved from the ASRS.
Voyager's features and functions were upgraded to improve the service provided to
Library staff and users. Machine readable catalogue (MARC) records of the Library's
e-book collections were successfully loaded into Voyager to enable easy access to
these collections.
The interface between Voyager's selection/procurement sub-systems and UBC's
central financial system was successfully completed. This has enabled prompt data
reconciliation between the two systems without manual data re-entry.
Hardware upgrades and replacements were completed for 400 staff and 190 public
workstations. This effort included the purchase of computers with pre-loaded
software for Library staff located in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. E-mail and
desktop software upgrades were completed for all Library staff, and the Thunderbird
e-mail system was introduced. Meanwhile, phase one of the Library's server consolidation with IT Services was accomplished.
Systems were set up to support a number of new initiatives, including the B.C.
newspaper index project, the UBC electronic dissertation and thesis project, and the
Nesstar data observatory.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   ig Learning and Research
Planning began to replace the obsolete interlibrary loan (ILL) system with a
new system called Relais. The new ILL system is targeted for implementation during
the summer of 2006, and will improve interlibrary loan lending and borrowing
Bibliographic Control, Cataloguing and Ordering
Technical Services continued to experience many changes, some related to realizing
the Library's 2004-2007 strategic plan and others related to new projects such as the
ASRS and the new Okanagan campus.
The year began with the integration of UBC Okanagan Library's catalogue into UBC
Library's existing catalogue. Related work included placing orders for UBC Okanagan
Library's entire periodical collection, staff training and, most difficult of all, reviewing
licences for every electronic resource in order to extend online access to the new
campus. This latter task highlighted how differently publishers treat a multi-campus
university; outcomes varied from no extra charges being required to having to sign a
new licence and pay double the costs.
About 40 students were employed from mid-June to mid-August 2005 to help move
about 1.4 million items from Main Library to the ASRS and the open shelves at the
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Although special temporary staff were hired,
Technical Services and other Library staff were on hand to assist with any difficulties
that arose.
Despite this additional work and the fact that staff members who left due to retirements and medical leaves were not replaced, Technical Services continued to provide
its usual high level of service, aided greatly by the new contract negotiated with the
Library's English-language book vendor Coutts. Improved services were also introduced, including the smoother receipt of books and catalogue records. Fewer materials were received for cataloguing during this reporting period, resulting in a
reduction of the backlog to 6,000 items by December 2005 from more than 11,000
in July 2005. The acquisitions unit was affected considerably by retirements, but
managed its peak workload period thanks to the assistance of other Technical
Services and Public Service units. The receipt of brief MARC records with embedded
order information from two vendors of European-language materials, Harrassowitz
and Aux Amateurs, and a Chinese-language vendor, China National Publishing
Industry Trading Corp., further improved the acquisitions workflow. During the
reporting period, Technical Services units across the Library catalogued 62,749 titles
20   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate and processed 84,978 items; these figures include 405 UBC theses and 6,536 non-
book materials. A revision was completed for the romanization of 40,000 catalogue
records for Chinese-language materials from Wade-Giles to Pinyin.
Although Technical Services continued to handle a considerable volume of work
related to print materials - such as ordering, serials check-in, binding, and the
cataloguing and processing of books not from Coutts - the real growth of work was
in the area of electronic resources. When the Electronic Resources Librarian took
another Library position in the fall, the reporting structure of the new hire was
changed to the Head of Technical Services from the Assistant University Librarian,
Collections and Technical Services. This allows for more integration of e-resource
processes into the Technical Services workflow and assistance from skilled staff
(most of whom have more than 25 years of experience). One instance where these
skills are needed is the annual project of cancelling print journal subscriptions
where stable online versions are held by the Library; more than 420 subscriptions
were cancelled. Work continues at inputting additional data into Meridian, modifying related workflows and promoting its use.
In January, Technical Services support staff in the Asian Library moved to the Library
Processing Centre (LPC), rejoining their colleagues. Planning for their move to the
Asian Library began in the early 1990s, with the idea that having Asian-language
expertise in the Asian Library would strengthen the branch's language capacity and
provide additional support for public services. However, in the intervening years the
technical services unit was affected by many early and regular retirements, and the
Library's budgetary situation precluded re-establishing the staff complement
necessary to support the Asian Library's technical services requirements.
Cataloguing for the Asian Library requires knowledge of specific languages. The
volume of Chinese-language books is large, so other cataloguing assistants in LPC
with the necessary language skills are assisting with this work. Book vendors in
Beijing have begun to provide catalogue records for the books purchased from their
inventory. With the addition of the Asian Library's backlog to the existing backlog in
Technical Services, it is imperative that options for reducing this backlog be identified and implemented quickly.

UBC Library participated in the implementation teams and steering committee for
the e-HLbc, an electronic health library for B.C. health practitioners. This project is a
collaboration between post-secondary libraries and health authority libraries, with
support provided by the British Columbia Academic Health Council and funding
provided by the provincial Ministry of Health. The project, which has an implementation date of April l, 2006, will provide access to seven key databases for all health
professionals in health authorities and post-secondary students throughout British
Columbia. UBC Library will increase access to e-resources for its users by obtaining
the EBSCO Comprehensive Biomedical Collection and moving from the index-only
version of CINAHL to CINAHL Fulltext.
The Library renewed its collaborative-licensing agreements with the Provincial
Health Services Authority, Vancouver Hospital, Providence Health Care, and Children's & Women's Health Centre of British Columbia. UBC Library provided bridge
licensing for databases included in the e-HLbc project and continued to provide
access to EMBASE, a database of drug and biomedical literature.
Community Access
Digitization of the British Columbia Reports law report series, including judgments
from 1867 through 1947, was completed in December 2005. Sixty-six volumes,
including 42,000 pages, were digitized. Funding for this collaborative project was
provided by the Notary Foundation of the Society of Notaries Public of British
Columbia, with additional support from the British Columbia Courthouse Library
Society, UBC Law Library and UBC Archives. This collection is now freely available
online via the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre website, providing valuable insight to
the province's legal and social history.
UBC Library hired an undergraduate medical librarian, with ongoing funding
provided by the MD undergraduate distributed program. This librarian coordinates
work across the distributed sites, and evaluates and recommends information
resources to support the program. Planning is now underway for Library support for
students moving into clerkships at clinical sites throughout the province in July
UBC Library standardized services relating to staff cards and staff in the three
teaching hospitals that contain Library branches. This allows non-UBC appointed
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   23 Community and Internationalization
hospital staff working in the UBC campus hospital and in any of the three teaching
hospitals to qualify for a free UBC Library hospital staff card.
The Library, in collaboration with the Alma Mater Society, successfully held the
third annual Food for Fines program for the benefit of various food banks. At UBC
Vancouver, a total of 3,335 items, representing 95 boxes of food, were collected, while
fines totalling $6,670 were waived. UBC Okanagan waived $760 in fines and collected
approximately 16 boxes of food.
The Asian Library again hosted an open house for explorASIAN, a celebration of Pan-
Asian Canadian arts and culture. Highlights included an Asian-language round robin
event where participants learned to speak Cantonese, Mandarin and Japanese; a
documentary film on Korea to celebrate explorKOREAN; displays on Calcutta, circa
1902-1905; and a workshop on Chinese genealogy.
The head of the Asian Library collaborated with the Vancouver Public Library on a
workshop about Chinese-Canadian genealogy and participated in a television talk
show about Chinese-Canadians' perspectives on being Canadian.
The Education Library was involved with various projects related to the Learning
Exchange Trek Program, which involves UBC students, staff and alumni volunteering in community service programs for Vancouver's inner-city neighbourhoods. In
January, the Education Library participated in the Varsity Readers Steps to Reading
program. This involved approximately 15 volunteers from a varsity sports team
visiting Queen Alexandra Elementary School in east Vancouver to share books with
children and engage them in reading.
The 2006 Authorfest, held in February 2006 in the Hebb Theatre, was a great
success. The Vancouver Children's Literature Roundtable and the Education Library
celebrated a quartet of West Coast writers - Linda Bailey, Lee Fodi, Adrienne Mason
and Michelle Davis - who spoke to a capacity audience.
Other community events included the Robson Square Reading Series, which has
continued to grow since its inception three years ago. This free bi-weekly series is
hosted jointly by UBC Bookstore and UBC Library at Robson Square, and presents a
selection of writers from varying backgrounds with an emphasis on new voices. The
series is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Writer's Union of Canada,
UBC Bookstore Robson Square and the Playwrights Guild of Canada.
24   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Rare Books and Special Collections provided manuscripts, maps, pamphlets, digital
images of rare materials and posters for an exhibition at the Yokohama Archives of
History in Japan. Much of the material came from the renowned Chung Collection.
International Initiatives
The activities and strategic plans of UBC Library continued to be of interest to many
local, national and international organizations and institutions, and the Library
hosted a range of visitors during the reporting period. These included a group of
Scandinavian librarians belonging to the Nordic Federation of Research Libraries
Associations, with members from the Danish Union of Librarians, the University of
Trondheim Library, Axiell Bibliotek AB, the Copenhagen Business School Library,
Ulleval University Hospital - Medical Library, the University Library of Southern
Denmark, the National Library of Education in Denmark, the Danish Union of
Librarians and Roskilde University Library.
Other visitors came from City University of Hong Kong; University of Hong Kong;
National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan; Korea University; Chongqing University,
China; Zhejiang University, China; King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals,
Saudi Arabia; the World Forestry Institute, Portland; the University of Missouri-
Kansas City; the Philippine Consulate General's Vancouver office; and Victoria
University of Wellington, New Zealand.
The Library hosted nine students from China for the Canada-China Cooperation on
the Management of Environmental Sustainability, a program managed through the
Canada School of Public Service. A tour of the Asian Library was provided for 30
Beijing taxation officials training at the Sauder School of Business.
UBC Library, one of 32 members of the Pacific Rim Digital Library Alliance, participated in a number of PRDLA initiatives. These included the implementation of a
web-based open archive that contains digital collections from all member institutions and a program involving no-fee, non-returnable interlibrary loans among
PRDLA members.
Tours of the Learning Centre were held during Alumni weekend, and the Library
participated in the UBC Alumni event held in Calgary.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   25 Community and Internationalization
Friends, Donors and Alumni
The generosity of friends, donors and alumni helps create opportunities for UBC
Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre to support teaching, learning and
research, and provide collections and services that would not otherwise be possible.
UBC Library and the Learning Centre accepted almost 2,500 gifts from dedicated
friends, donors and alumni in the last fiscal year. Financial support for collections
and technology endowment funds continued with a new fund established in 2006,
called the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre Endowment Fund. This endowment was
initiated as a result of a bequest of more than $71,000 from the Estate of Kathleen A.
Johnston. Ms. Johnston graduated with an Arts degree; she spent her time at UBC
studying English Literature and had a particular fondness for studying in the
Learning Centre's Ridington Room.
The spirit of giving was further exemplified with a donation by Mrs. Jean Barber,
who commissioned a work by Vancouver artist John Nutter entitled The Magic of
Discovery. This is an inspiring 30-piece glass sculpture that depicts images from
many cultures and countries and embodies the vision of the Irving K. Barber
Learning Centre. The sculpture is located in the Ridington Room.
A bequest of $50,000 from alumnae Barbara Joyce Mac Vicar (Leslie) was directed
toward the Diana E.M. Cooper Endowment Fund, which supports the acquisition of
materials for the study of creative and fine arts. Barbara spent her years at UBC
studying Fine Arts and English, and her passion for fine arts continued during her
retirement as she volunteered as a docent for the National Gallery in Ottawa.
Henry Carr Phelps generously provided another donation of shares to help bolster
the UBC Library Collection Enrichment Fund and Robert Omar Khan continued his
long-time support of UBC Library's collections by donating four incunabula to Rare
Books and Special Collections.
26   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Irving K. Barber Learning Centre

The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
Statement of Purpose and Charter
of Principles
A Breakfast at the Barber event was held to
welcome Library staff to phase one. Irving Barber attended
this event, as did interested passers-by, and guided and self-
guided tours were offered.
Much work went into the planning for phase one, including
the move of about 1.4 million items, 800,000 of which went
to the automated storage and retrieval system. In addition
to the ASRS, these items were destined for the shelving areas
in Fine Arts, Science and Engineering, University Archives
and Rare Books and Special Collections.
Highlights of phase one include the automated storage and
retrieval system (ASRS) and the impressive Ridington Room,
named after John Ridington, UBC's first University Librarian.
This spacious room, spread over two floors, features portraits of UBC's Presidents and Chancellors. It also contains a
stunning glass artwork, commissioned by Mrs. Jean Barber,
entitled The Magic of Discovery.
Phase one houses Circulation, Fine Arts, Science and
Engineering, University Archives, and Rare Books and
Special Collections. It also serves as the temporary home for
the staff of these areas. In addition, phase one is the temporary location of the Office of the University Librarian and
Managing Director of the Learning Centre.
Flexible learning spaces are a hallmark of phase one. These
include open spaces with mobile furniture that can be
moved to facilitate solo or group study, reading bays with
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   27 Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
comfortable seating, clusters of workstations and group study rooms. Self-serve
checkout units have also been installed.
In March, the Consulting Engineers of British Columbia announced an award of
merit for Earth Tech Canada Inc., the company implementing the Learning Centre's
mechanical systems (these include plumbing, fire protection, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning). Earth Tech installed a thermo active slab system in phase
one, and this system will also be employed in phase two.
Irving K. Barber was presented with the Keith Sacre Library Champion award from
the British Columbia Library Association. This award is presented annually to an
individual, organization or business that has a record of support of libraries and
literacy. The Learning Centre's architecture and development were featured in
Library Journal and American Libraries.
Construction has continued on the second and final phase of the Learning Centre,
which is scheduled to open in late 2007. The development of programs and services
also proceeded. Much progress has been made towards achieving the various goals
outlined in the 2005 Learning Centre Update and Summary Report. Accomplishments include improved access to UBC Library's collection, the provision of health
information via a partnership with TELUS, continued webcasts of lectures and other
public events, digitization initiatives, building partnerships with a variety of B.C.
institutions and organizations, and developing information resources and services
for B.C's health sciences community. These and other highlights are described below.
Automated storage and retrieval system
The automated storage and retrieval system began operating in June 2005 and has
proven to be a major success. The ASRS, which is also known as the library robot,
includes four robotic cranes that retrieve stainless steel bins, filled with books and
other physical items such as maps, from a racking system measuring approximately
45 feet high, 60 feet wide and 160 feet long.
Users can retrieve materials by making a request via the Library's online catalogue
from anywhere in the world. The entire process is completed in minutes, compared
to the previous method of requesting materials from storage, which could take
several days. Initially, it was estimated that there would be about 30 retrievals per
day from the ASRS. However, the average number of daily retrievals ranged from
about 90 to 110 items during the fall/winter session.
28   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate While other industries in Canada have opted for ASRS technology, UBC Library is
the first Canadian library to install an ASRS, and the system currently is the largest
such installation in North America. With a capacity of 1.8 million volumes, the ASRS
provides years of valuable growth space for UBC Library's physical collection. The
Library is also examining ways that the ASRS and its archival-quality space can be
used to help other libraries and organizations throughout British Columbia house
their unique and fragile collections.
The Chapman Learning Commons
Since its inception in 2002 the Chapman Learning Commons has been heavily
used. The number of visitors to Main Library increased by 1,000 per day shortly
after the opening of the Learning Commons and remained at that level, despite the
disruption due to the construction of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. In July
2005, the Chapman Learning Commons closed to make way for construction of
phase two of the Learning Centre. Plans are underway for the reopening of the
Learning Commons upon the building's completion in late 2007, with enhanced
space and services. Services will be reviewed to ensure that they represent and
support the broader community as well as users at UBC.
The laptop lending program remained popular with users, with 1,647 loans from
April 2005 to July 16,2005. Students hired through the Peer Assistant Program
helped staff the information desk in the Chapman Learning Commons and
answered some of the 4,738 queries received from April 2005 to July 16,2005. As
well, peer assistants initiated and coordinated several programs, including Library
in Residence/Peer Assisted Research, Roving the Web at the UBC Learning Exchange
and the Chapman Discussion Series.
Enhanced access for users at UBC and throughout British Columbia was a key goal
during the reporting period. A Learning Centre initiative enabled UBC Library to
reduce its interlibrary loan fees for all public libraries and most health libraries in
B.C. Another Learning Centre initiative, carried out in collaboration with the British
Columbia Electronic Library Network, resulted in all B.C. post-secondary libraries
agreeing to eliminate interlibrary loan charges for books among their libraries.
Near the end of this reporting period, the Learning Centre, working with the Prince
George Public Library, began an interlibrary loan pilot project involving the free
delivery of UBC Library books and articles to users in remote areas. This project is
part of the Learning Centre's InfoDIRECT service, which provides the direct delivery
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   29 Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
of UBC Library materials to users. An expansion of the service on a province-wide
basis, working with other partner libraries, will be explored. These efforts, from the
reduced fees to the Prince George pilot project, were undertaken as a result of
feedback gathered during provincial consultations held by the Learning Centre in
eHelp Virtual Reference Service
The past year was a busy period for the eHelp Virtual Reference Pilot Project. During
this time, eHelp, an online reference service that allows users to chat with Library
and Learning Centre staff, co-browse research databases and websites, and send and
receive documents, answered more than 6,000 questions from UBC and community users. Hours during the fall 2005 and winter 2006 terms were 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
during the weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends.
As part of eHelp, an instant messaging pilot project entitled IM the Library began
in February. This project involved using instant messaging - essentially, a real-time,
online chat service that is increasingly popular - to communicate with users
needing reference assistance.
Continued support from the Sutherland Foundation enabled the development of a
number of projects, such as the instant messaging pilot and the joint B.C. campus
reference service provided by UBC, Simon Fraser University and the University of
Victoria. As a result of this partnership, B.C. post-secondary libraries, working with
BCcampus and the British Columbia Electronic Library Network, are developing a
province-wide collaborative virtual reference service.
With the support of a 2005/06 Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF)
grant, eHelp expanded the online term paper research clinic program, with
increased hours and an improved online booking system. More than 100 students
received one-to-one online assistance with their term paper research during the
three-week program.
In 2003, the Learning Centre began webcasting special lectures and events through
its website. To date, more than a dozen lectures, forums, concerts and symposia in
support of lifelong learning have been webcast, and many are archived and indexed
for future viewing. Some webcasts are also accompanied by guides to additional
30   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate The Learning Centre remained busy with its webcasting schedule during this
reporting period. Highlights included PricewaterhouseCoopers' 18th Annual Global
Forest and Paper Industry Conference, the B.C. Regional Community Service-
Learning Conference and three events that were part of the UBC/World Urban Forum
3 Living the Global City Series.
In March, the Learning Centre and the UBC Faculty of Medicine, with the support of
the Canadian Diabetes Foundation, presented the second annual Diabetes Forum
and Live Webcast. The event featured presentations and a discussion featuring a
group of B.C. researchers. Webcast viewers tuned in from around the province, and
questions were e-mailed from users in locations such as Kamloops, Salmon Arm
and Burnaby.
Partnering with other organizations to promote community outreach and lifelong
learning is an important part of the Learning Centre's mission. To that end, the
Learning Centre has pursued various agreements during the past year. One of those
involved a partnership with the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia to
introduce the Physiotherapy Outreach Project, which was made possible thanks to
generous funding from the Sutherland Foundation.
"Eugene has opened a window to technology that we had no idea even existed.
- Rebecca Tunnaceiffe, CEO,
Physiotherapy Association of
British Coeumbia
This three-year project involved the hiring of a Physiotherapy Outreach Librarian to provide information
resources and services for B.C's professional physiotherapy community. Since joining the Learning Centre in
February 2006, Eugene Barsky has answered research
questions submitted via e-mail and telephone. He has
also employed technologies such as a weblog, a customized search engine and RSS feeds, and has participated in workshops in the Lower
Mainland and elsewhere in British Columbia.
Along with the Vancouver Public Library, the Learning Centre co-sponsored an
event entitled The Future of Newspapers, which was held in November 2005. The
panel discussion featured local editors discussing the impact of digital media on
Another Learning Centre partnership involved TELUS, a major national telecommunications company. This involved a new online health service (http://health.mytelus.
com) that TELUS is set to launch shortly after this reporting period. The Learning
Centre will have a presence on the website, and will provide reliable content in the

Rare Books and Special Collections holds one of the world's largest collections of
maps and guidebooks from the Japanese Tokugawa period, circa 1600-1867. The core
of the collection was formed after World War II by George H. Beans. In late 2005,
work began on the digitization of more than 300 maps to make them searchable
and viewable online. The viewing software allows users to see a whole map and
zoom in for detailed views. The first phase of the project involved the digitization of
all single-sheet maps, and a second phase will digitize maps in atlases. This project, a
collaboration between University Archives and Rare Books and Special Collections,
was funded by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, with support from the Department of Asian Studies.
University Archives received funding from the Learning Centre to purchase a wide-
format scanner to support this project. As a result, rare and valuable maps did not
have to leave the building, while staff were given control over scanning quality and
developed expertise in large-format scanning. It is anticipated that the new scanner
will be used for many future digitization projects involving large-format items such
as newspapers, posters and maps, and to scan large-format items for other departments and project collaborators.
These efforts will also benefit the Early Modern Komonjo and Kuzushiji Workshop,
scheduled for summer 2006. The Beans Collection will be the centrepiece for part of
this workshop, and its digitized segment will support the work of participants.
Research Proiects
The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre has been involved in various grant submissions
during the past year, including RESCALE, or Researching Campus Learning Ecosystems, a proposed campus-wide research infrastructure for learning. In addition, near
the end of this reporting period, the Learning Centre was invited to participate as a
resource partner in a project to be based at UBC and funded by the Social Sciences
and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The proposed undertaking intends to
apply the knowledge produced by the InterPARES (International Research on
Permanent Authentic Records in Electronic Systems) Project to real-life situations.
32   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate Future Directions
During 2005/06, the Library introduced a number of major changes,
all with the intent of improving services and resources for the
Library's community of users. Undoubtedly the next year will bring
more of the same.
Vision Statement: UBC Library
will be a provincial, national and international leader in the development,
provision and delivery of outstanding
information resources and services
that are essential to learning, research
and the creation of knowledge at UBC
and beyond.
Furthering Learning and Research
2004-2007, P.4
Many tasks were completed during the reporting
period, and many others await us in the coming year. As we
move forward, I am encouraged by the progress we have
made, and look forward to the work that lies ahead.
Certain organizational changes will need to be considered
next year. For example, Peter Ward has been appointed as
Interim Deputy University Librarian, and it will need to be
determined whether a permanent Deputy will be selected
and how this process will be managed. In addition, some
senior-level Library employees are scheduled to retire in the
coming year. Their departure will offer the Library an
opportunity to review parts of its organizational structure
and re-examine certain staff roles and responsibilities.
As UBC Library enters the next reporting period, it also will
enter the final year of its three-year strategic plan, entitled
Furthering Learning and Research 2004-2007. This was the
successor to a previous three-year plan, and both were
informed by various UBC initiatives, including Trek 2000.
Looking ahead, the Library will need to begin formulating its
next three-year plan within the context of Trek 2010, UBC's
current strategy document. Similar to the previous versions,
the Library's next strategic plan will articulate the organization's vision, mission, values and goals, and guide the
development of an implementation plan. We look forward
to reviewing the Library's development and articulating a
strategy that will help guide us to 2010 and beyond with our
broad community of users.
Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   33 Future Directions
As ever, adequate funding will continue to be essential in order to maintain UBC
Library's status as a world-class, research-intensive organization and help it ensure
that its resources and services support the University's population, which continues
to grow. For example, the projected total of undergraduate and graduate students
attending UBC Vancouver as of September 2006 is more than 43,000. Meanwhile,
the student population at UBC Okanagan totalled 3,500 in September 2005, and
that figure is expected to grow to 7,500 students by September 2009.
The next year promises growth in a range of areas at UBC Okanagan Library, including staff, collections, users and electronic access. With the encouragement and
acceptance of the Senate for an accelerated building program, planning for a major
and comprehensive expansion of UBC Okanagan is underway. The possibilities are
exciting and energizing for staff and the results promise to serve Okanagan faculty
and students well.
Construction of phase two of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will continue, with
its official opening scheduled to take place in late 2007. Doubtless, this will be a
historic event for UBC, the Learning Centre and the Library. When completed, phase
two will feature a refurbished core of the historic Main Library and a new wing
including an array of interactive learning spaces and classrooms, new homes for
University Archives and Rare Books and Special Collections staff, new space for the
renowned Chung Collection, a refurbished Chapman Commons and Dodson
Reading Room, spaces for the Arts One, Science One and Coordinated Arts programs,
labs and offices for the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, and
more. The Learning Centre will also collaborate with campus partners, such as UBC
Food Services and UBC Bookstore, for the establishment of a cafe and retail space in
phase two.
In addition, there are plans to establish a Creative Commons, which will feature a
range of technologies to help users navigate and manage the vast amount of
information that is available in a variety of formats. Some parts of the Learning
Centre will be open and accessible 24 hours a day. Finally, as with phase one,
sustainable features - including low-flush toilets, a radiant heating and cooling
system, and recyclable products - will be implemented.
Phase two will be accompanied by the renewal of the green space between the
Learning Centre and Koerner Library. This major landscaping project, set to begin
in spring 2007, will result in a beautiful outdoor setting that supports and encourages learning.
34   Report of the University Librarian to the Senate The Learning Centre's services will also develop during the coming year. Since the
facility was first envisioned it has striven to be as inclusive as possible, serving users
at UBC, throughout the province and beyond. To date, much time and effort has
been spent focusing on the first two user groups. Now, we are ready to expand our
role, and we plan to concentrate further on the "beyond B.C." aspect. For example,
the Learning Centre has been busy working with the National Library Board of
Singapore and plans to sign an agreement in January 2007 that will enable the
sharing of resources and services between the two organizations.
I am pleased to note that we received a commitment of $1 million in annual funding
to support the operations of the Learning Centre from the President's Office. This
commitment will be realized over the next five years, starting at $200,000 and
growing by that amount each consecutive year. This commitment complements the
annual $1 million in targeted funding from the provincial government to support
the Learning Centre's operations.
Much work lies ahead for UBC Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre,
whose activities support Trek 2010, UBC's strategic plan. That document's mission
states in part that "The University of British Columbia will provide its students,
faculty and staff with the best possible resources and conditions for learning and
research, and create a working environment dedicated to excellence, equity and
mutual respect. It will cooperate with government, business, industry and the
professions, as well as with other educational institutions and the general community, to discover, disseminate and apply new knowledge, prepare its students for
fulfilling careers and improve the quality of life through leading-edge research."
As the Library and Learning Centre embark on another productive year, this admirable mission will help guide our efforts to provide excellent resources and services
for users at UBC, throughout the province and beyond.

Report of the University Librarian to the Senate   41 Appendix E
Donor and Gift Recognition
Thanks to the generosity of many friends
including parents, students, staff, faculty
alumni, government, foundations, corporations
and community members, UBC Library's and
the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre's services
and collections continued to support UBC's
goal of being one of the best universities in the
and expanding the Library's collections, filling
gaps in journal back-runs, replacing out-of-print
titles and providing resources in specialized
areas. During the 2005/06 fiscal year, UBC
Library received 83 gift-in-kind donations. These
gifts ranged from 15th-century books to journal
subscriptions to archival materials about the
Blackdome Mining Corporation.
Parent and Alumni Appeals
The Library and the Learning Centre are
extremely grateful for the continued interest
and support of its many friends who made
2,340 gifts in the 2005/06 fiscal year, which had
a value $510,645.37. These included gifts-in-kind,
cash donations and pledges made to various
endowments or projects.
Throughout its history, the Library has benefited immensely from generous donations of
gifts-in-kind from the community, faculty, staff
and students. Gifts-in-kind contribute directly
to the Library's academic mission by enhancing
We have made every effort to ensure the
accuracy of the list of donations received
between April 1, 2005 and March 31,
2006. Please direct any inquiries to the
Library Development Office at 604-822-
Parents of UBC students continue to recognize
the important role that the Library plays in the
academic lives of their children. The annual
parents' campaign for the Library raised $131,271
from 1,314 parent donors in 2005/06. This was an
increase of approximately $25,000 compared to
last year's campaign. The majority of this money
was directed to the Wireless Library @ UBC Fund.
Other alumni mail and phone campaigns raised
$47,284 for the Library.
Sharing the Passion
An alumnus of UBC and friend of the library,
Barbara Joyce MacVicar, left a generous legacy
gift of $50,000 to UBC Library. Her bequest has
been directed to the Diana EM. Cooper Endowment, which is used to acquire materials that
support the study of creative and/or fine arts.
Barbara studied Fine Arts and English Literature
as a student. Her passion for the arts continued
long after her days on the Point Grey campus,
and Barbara was a volunteer at the National
Gallery in Ottawa throughout her retirement.
Her thoughtful bequest will allow UBC Library
to share her passion for the arts with current
students and those yet to come.
