New: UBC Legacy Video Collection

The newest addition to UBC Library’s Digital Collections is the UBC Legacy Video Collection.

These videotaped interviews are the product of an on-going project to document the personal experiences of people affiliated with the University.  The University Legacy Committee has conducted interviews and created a repository of video recordings of personal histories. Interviewees have been asked a set of generic questions developed for their respective groups, including faculty, staff, and alumni. To date the project has completed interviews with approximately 65 current and former members of the University community, and their stories are included in this collection.

As we approach the University’s upcoming centenary we hope to add many more recordings and to carry this initiative into the future.
