Welcome to UBC Library’s fourth annual Community Report, which highlights how UBC Library has engaged students, staff, and community and faculty members during the past year. The theme guiding this issue is sustainability, one of the central issues of our time. As UBC Sustainability notes, “Sustainability at UBC isn’t just a word to define – it’s a term that defines us and how we interact with the world.”
Sustainability is also a key commitment in Place and Promise, UBC’s strategic plan – and we wanted to share how the Library is supporting economic, environmental and social sustainability at the University. Our efforts include contributions to Better World Books, digitization projects on the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses, a technology training program for international students and more.
In the spirit of sustainability and engagement, the Community Report is being published solely online. Enjoy – and let the conversation begin!
