Sarbjit Kaur Randhawa’s Transition to the South Asian and Himalayan Studies Librarian (Full-time)

UBC Asian Library is please to announce that Sarbjit Kaur Randhawa, who has worked in a part-time capacity as our Indic Librarian for the past twelve years, has transitioned to a full-time role as our South Asian and Himalayan Studies Librarian.

Sarbjit graduated from UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (currently UBC iSchool) with a Certificate in Advanced Study (CAS) in 2005, and joined the Asian Library in the same year. Sarbjit is also a graduate from Guru Nanak Dev University with three Master degrees including a Master in Library and Information Science (MLIS), a Master in Religious Studies, and a Master of Arts in Punjabi. She is fluent in various South Asian languages including Hindi, Punjabi, Sanskrit and Urdu. Along with her co-researcher Aditi Gupta of the University of Victoria Libraries, Sarbjit is the recipient of American Library Association Diversity Research Grant for 2015-16. Their research is based on exploring library perceptions, reading habits and library usage of the South Asian population in BC. She was awarded the prestigious 2014 Dr. Mohinder Singh Randhawa award for promoting and sharing South Asian language and culture, and preserving its collections through her community-outreach and library services. Sarbjit has a passion for poetry, and many of her poems have been published in several newspapers and magazines.

Congratulations Sarbjit! We are lucky to have you at Asian Library, and look forward to working with you in a full-time capacity!

Remembering Mr. Yim Tse, Chinese Librarian 1968-1999

The UBC Library is sad to announce that Mr. Yim Tse, the former Chinese Librarian with Asian Library, passed away on March 16, 2018. Prior to his time as Chinese Librarian, Mr. Tse worked as both a Student Assistant and Library Assistant with the Asian Library. In 1968 Mr. Tse took on the position of Chinese Librarian, a post he held until his retirement in 1999. Mr. Tse was highly respected by UBC faculty and students for his knowledge and in-depth reference support. In addition to his contributions as a librarian, Mr. Tse was also a devoted supporter of the UBC library. Over the years, his family has donated to the Basil Stuart Stubbs Book Prize Fund, the Asian Library Renovation Fund and the Rosa Wai Wai Ho Scholarship in Asian Studies. His gift-in-kind donations are important research materials to the Chinese collection in the Asian library. 

The Meiji at 150 Project

The 2017-2018 Academic Year sees the 150th anniversary of Japan’s 1868 Meiji Restoration, an epochal political revolution that sparked Japan’s remarkable modernization, dramatic cultural transformation, and rapid emergence onto the global stage.

At UBC, the Asian Library is working together with the Centre for Japanese Research, the Department of History, and the Department of Asian Studies to present a year-long series of events convening scholars of Japan from around North America to interrogate Japan’s position in global history along with the place of the Meiji Restoration in Japanese historical pedagogy. The Meiji at 150 Digital Teaching Resource aims to promote UBC Library’s Japan-related collections held at Rare Books and Special Collections. Please contact the Japanese language librarian, Naoko Kato (naoko.kato@ubc.ca) if interested in finding out more about the library’s Japanese collections.

To learn more about this project as well as the details of the upcoming workshops and lectures, please visit https://meijiat150.arts.ubc.ca/ or email meijiat150@gmail.com.

UBC Day of Learning Event Recap

UBC’s Day of Learning took place on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. The event marked the 75th anniversary of Japanese-Canadian internment and the 5th anniversary of the UBC Honorary Degree Ceremony for the 76 Japanese Canadian students expelled in 1942.

The day-long event was comprised of four sessions, and the Asian Library had the privilege to be a co-organizer for the afternoon workshop entitled “Stories on Organizing Against Injustice.” We had six Japanese-Canadian community members who shared their lived experiences in small group settings. There were approximately 60 participants including UBC students, alumni, faculty members, staff, and community members. The participants commented on how unique this opportunity was, to be able to engage in inter-generational conversations.

The UBC Day of Learning was made possible with the support of different units across UBC and community partners. Check out the video recordings of the other three workshops at the Day of Learning website.

Celebrate DIWALI with the Asian Library

Join the Asian Library to celebrate Diwali (Festival of Lights)!

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
12:00 noon to 1:30 pm
Asian Centre Auditorium, 1871 West Mall

Diwali or Deepavali, which means “a row of lights”, is the most widely celebrated annual Indian festival. It marks the victory of good over evil, and the beginning of the New Year in India. Diwali takes place at the end of October or the first week of November, and is celebrated on Amavasya (darkest night or no moon day). The festival typically lasts from 5 to 7 days, and the first day marks the beginning of the fiscal year. It is enjoyed by the majority of Indians regardless of faith, including Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists. On Diwali, people decorate their houses with candles and colorful lights, and also share their gifts and recite prayers.

Everyone is cordially invited to experience diversity of culture through music, Henna, and delicious refreshments. All Diwali activities are drop-in, free and open to UBC students, staff and faculty.

For more information, please call 604-822-2427 or visit us in person at the Asian Library at UBC Asian Centre.

From Wenzhou to Vancouver, From Yale to Oxford: Journey of Knowledge Archaeology of a Freelance Writer

With speaker SHEN Jia (沈迦)

Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Time: 12:00-1:30 p.m.
Venue: Asian Centre Auditorium, 1871 West Mall
Language: Mandarin

以商品经济闻名遐迩的浙江温州,其老城区里有一座百年历史的基督教堂,但教堂创建者的名字及其作为这座城市现代化奠基人的事迹却被有意无意淹埋在波云诡谲的历史里。童年时曾随祖母去这座教堂礼拜的沈迦,大学读了新闻系,毕业后做过记者、编辑、商人,然后在十余年前移民来到了温哥华。在安静的温哥华,他依托近代史料宏富的UBC亚洲图书馆,从童年的家乡记忆出发,通过爬梳档案、田野调查、口述访谈,历时六年,跨越亚欧美三大洲,以知识考古学的方式还原了这位名叫苏慧廉的英国传教士波澜壮阔的一生,及其与中国近代史一咏三叹的关联。

成书于温哥华的《寻找·苏慧廉》2013年在台湾、大陆相继出版后一纸风行,当年即获评中国“年度十大好书”,凤凰卫视还据此拍摄了同名记录片。

In the old quarter of Wenzhou, a well-known city for its commodity economy in Zhejiang Province, stands a Christian church built about one century ago. However, the name of the builder and his contribution to the city’s modernity were intentionally or unintentionally buried in sudden and perplexing changes of history. Mr. Shen Jia went to this church with his grandmother in his childhood. He majored in Journalism when he was a college student. After graduating, he worked as a journalist, editor, and entrepreneur. He immigrated to Canada and settled down in Vancouver more than ten years ago. Using the abundant collection on modern Chinese history in UBC Asian Library, Shen started writing on his childhood memories in his hometown. His work is based on archival research, fieldwork, interviews, and six years’ of endeavors in Asia, Europe and America. Drawing from the methodology of knowledge archaeology, he brought to life the magnificent story of this British missionary, William Edward Soothill, and his relationship with modern Chinese history.

Written in Vancouver, Seeking Soothill 《寻找·苏慧廉》was published in Taiwan, and then in mainland China in 2013, and became popular immediately. It was praised as one of “the Best Ten Books of the Year” in China and was adapted as a documentary under the same title by Phoenix Satellite Television.

Welcoming AAPS members to the Asian Centre and Asian Library

This summer the Asian Library offered two tours to the members of the Association of Administrative & Professional Staff (AAPS), the professional association for the Management and Professional (M&P) staff group at UBC.

The tours took place on July 6 and August 29 with a total of 30 M&P Staff from 18 departments attended.  Phoebe Chow, Program Services Assistant, first told the story of the Asian Centre building, focusing on its huge, pyramid-shaped roof that was originally made for the Sanyo Pavilion during Expo ’70 in Osaka, Japan. The participants then followed Naoko Kato, Japanese Language Librarian, and Lucia Park, Korean Language Librarian, to explore all three levels of the library. Participants were particularly interested in the Asian language learning materials as well as the collections with traditional Asian bookbinding. Finally, participants toured the outdoor area, including the Pacific Bell tower.

As part of the AAPS Summer Networking Series, these lunch and learns tours provided an exciting opportunity for members to get to know the campus and its resources better. We wish to see more staff visiting the Asian Centre and the Asian Library in the future!
