The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC) is now home to UBC Library’s newest specialized space dedicated to the conservation, preservation and treatment of the library’s physical materials. Completed in early September 2021, the Conservation Space is staffed by conservator Anne Lama, conservation technician Hannah McKendry, and student staff who ensure that the library’s circulating collections and rare materials will stand the test of time.
