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.
