About AMS Collection

About the AMS and the AMS Archives

The Alma Mater Society (AMS) of UBC was formally founded at the adoption of its constitution on October 15, 1915. The AMS's mission is "to improve the quality of the educational, social, and personal lives of the students of UBC." All UBC students are members of the AMS.

The AMS Archives is managed by the knowledgeable resident Archivist, Sheldon Goldfarb. The finding aid for the AMS Archives is available here.

About the Digital Collection

This project was developed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for LIBR 582 / ARST 556P : Digital Images and Text Collections, a course at the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS) at the University of British Columbia in March 2016. It was created on behalf of and in cooperation with the AMS Archives at the University of British Columbia.

Images were scanned and processed by Emilee Wagner and Nicole Satchell.

Each object was scanned using a KODAK i3450 scanner and KODAK Smart Touch software at 600 dpi, minimally processed using Adobe Photoshop, and saved in jpeg format.
