Osborn archive at UBC
April 08th, 2015
Library Students at UBC have created a digital archive called The Bud Osborn Collection to honour the work of Downtown Eastside activist and poet Bud Osborn who died in 2014 at age 66. The UBC-generated collection is the result of projects conducted by students of the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia, developed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the class LIBR 582: Digital Images and Text Collections. The Osborn poems are accompanied by images by Richard Tetrault, and in collaboration with designers David Bircham and David Lester.
