Here at UBC it is Reading Week, which means of course most students book it to the library… kidding! Nearly every person on campus has escaped the ivory tower for greener pastures, but that doesn’t mean our faithful readers can’t take a look at our collections still. Did you know since they are digital accessible online, for everyone all over the world? Of course you did!
For our blog this week we’re going dive right into reading theme across the ages in our digital collections.
Or, if looking at people reading or books about reading isn’t your bag check out this article on the cultural production of reading and readers from UBC Theses and Dissertations – one of the many in our collection.
Of course… you don’t have to take my word for it – check out the collections for yourself by clicking on the images or searching Open Collections!
