Eugene Barsky, a Science and Engineering Librarian at UBC Library, has won an award from the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE, Engineering Libraries Division) for his work involving the digitization and promotion of decades of information on mine reclamation.
Barsky was given the Innovation in Access to Engineering Information award for the project, a collaboration between UBC Library and the British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation. The effort resulted in free, open access to more than 30 years of symposium proceedings that are hosted on cIRcle, UBC’s information repository, at https://circle.ubc.ca/handle/2429/6934.
An article on the project appeared last year in the Northern Miner. You can view the article here.
Certificates will be awarded in June at the American Society for Engineering Education Conference and Exposition.
