The Historical Debates of the Parliament of Canada portal provides a centralized, streamlined means of accessing historical debates of the Senate and House of Commons, in both official languages.
Since the adoption of official reporting (in 1871 for the Senate and 1880 for the House of Commons), the daily editions of the Hansard were issued in bound, well-indexed volumes. This site has been produced from digitized editions of these volumes, all available under their corresponding Parliament and Session, in the Browse function of this portal.
In 2013, POV staged its 100th production, Verdi's Falstaff. To celebrate the milestone of the 100th production, this collection of POV's historic posters was gathered and digitized by UVic Archives. These posters form a part of Pacific Opera Victoria's archival fonds (AR485), now housed at UVic Archives & Special Collections. They advertise productions extending back to POV's earliest days as the Vancouver Island Opera Society. The posters show as much variety as the productions they advertise, drawing on local illustrators, photographers and typographers to convey the flavour of each opera. http://www.uvic.ca/library/featured/collections/literature/PacificOperaVictoria.php
The sixth juried travelling exhibition from the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild is on display in the Legacy Maltwood Gallery in the McPherson Library. The artists in the exhibition competed in five categories of design: artist’s books, binding, printing, calligraphy and boxmaking. The exhibit, which is a collaboration between CABBAG, UVic Libraries, and Legacy Art Galleries, continues until March 24, 2014. More information: Amy Smart's article in the Times Colonist, November 22, 2013.
The results are in for UVic Libraries' 2013 Book Sale for the United Way. Last week's 3-day sale at the Michèle Pujol room in the SUB was an astounding success and we raised just over $10K! All proceeds from the sale will go toward the United Way of Greater Victoria.
Special thanks to everyone who donated materials and supported the sale.
The UVic Libraries’ Food for Fines drive returns again this year, and will run from Monday, November 18 to Sunday, December 8. All library users are invited to donate non-perishable food items in exchange for a reduction of their library fines. For each item donated, the library will waive two dollars in fines from a user’s account, to a maximum of twenty dollars. Or, library users may pay for fines with cash, credit card or cheque, and opt to “divert” the payment amount to the Mustard Seed as a donation. The food donations will be shared by the Mustard Seed and UVSS food banks.
