Xwi7xwa Library – Closed on Sept 18, 2013
The Xwi7xwa Library is closed on September 18 for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s British Columbia National Event. Xwi7xwa staff will be participating in events at the PNE grounds and on the UBC campus. All other branches of UBC Library are providing full service during their regular hours on Sept 18 and Xwi7xwa will resume regular service hours on Sept 19. For more information about UBC related events please visit www.ubc.ca/OurTruth.
During the Week of Reconciliation, we will participate in order for us to reflect and learn in the spirit of the Senate’s April 2012 decision to suspend classes. In doing so, we will be better prepared to support the TRC-related student-led learning, faculty’s TRC-related curriculum and faculty TRC-related research.
For information about the TRC’s BC National Event, see their website. For help finding information (including articles, books and videos) about Residential Schools and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, explore Xwi7xwa Library’s “Indian Residential Schools in Canada” Research Guide.
