The Student Publications collection at the Emily Carr University Library records the university’s history through the perspective of its student community. Their pages are a window of a time glimpsed not only through the explicit reading of text and images but also through the format of display, the layout of the content, and the omissions or highlights of each volume; all of which allow the reader of the archives to glimpse the evolution of the student community from the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts to the Vancouver School of Art to what is now Emily Carr University.
