In case you missed it, Eugene Barsky won the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE, Engineering Libraries Division) Award last week. The certificate will be awarded in June at the ASEE Conference and Exposition.
As one of the Science & Engineering Librarians at UBC Library, Eugene spearheaded the collaboration between UBC Library and the British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation. The objective? To digitize and make openly available over 30 years of mine reclamation information.
This digitization project provides free, open access to more than 600 BC Mining Reclamation symposia proceedings – covering mines from around the globe, including Canada – hosted on cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository.
Did You Know?
The British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium proceedings were featured in the Northern Miner newspaper and on the UBC Library News blog. This collection has been viewed and downloaded hundreds of times, mainly by users in the U.S. and Canada, but also by those from the U.K., Portugal, China, India, Finland and Norway.
