Staying in British Columbia

UBC Honors history alumna Ingrid Parent was going to go to library school in the U.S., but instead chose to go the University of British Columbia; now she serves at its chief librarian.

Parent took a seat in her cushy office in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre as UBC’s 14th university librarian on July 1. She cites two reasons for returning to UBC: her parents live here, and UBC holds a place in her heart.

“I’ve always been very proud of UBC,” she said. “I thought I could make a great contribution to the library here.” Before she was hired at UBC, Parent worked as the Assistant Deputy Minister at Library and Archives Canada (LAC).
