News & Events

The most recent display in the UBC Okanagan Special Collections features books that were acquired through the generous support of Richard Ingram. Ingram makes this gift in honour of his grandfather, R.S. Sargent, in acknowledgement of the Sargent’s positive relationships with the Gitxsan and Wet’suwet’en First Nations in the area surrounding which is now called Hazelton, B.C.

The R.S. Sargent Collection is built around a goal of enhancing our library with materials created by Indigenous writers and publishers. It will also lay a foundation for creating a rich, Okanagan-focused research collection that can be accessed by students, researchers, and community members.

Learn more about R. S. Sargent and his grandson, Richard Ingram and their remarkable family story.

The display is located in the Commons building (COM004) and is open to the public, however, during summer (May-Aug) visitors must access Special Collections by appointment only.
