Compiling a display of educational resources about an historic genocide proved to be a learning experience in more ways than one for the University of Alberta librarian who drew on the expertise of researchers from campus and across the continent to obtain the materials.
For decades, more than a century of Alberta’s education history has lived on in the Faculty of Education’s H.T. Coutts Library. Unfortunately, it’s lived on in a windowless room in the basement behind a locked door, accessible only by request. But thanks to a generous bequest from a former University of Alberta education professor, this archive will be available to anyone anywhere at any time.
