Description: 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.

Description: Emily Carr is very proud of a series of donations made to the University by Dr. Yosef Wosk containing works by Cézanne, Rembrandt , Renoir, Riopelle, Cocteau, Chagal, Picasso, Manet, Miro, Warhol, Goya, Rauschenberg and many other artists. It is Dr. Wosk's hope that others will be moved to contribute works that will add both depth and instructional value to the collection. "This teaching collection will enable students to engage a series of original works, inspired by some of the best printmakers working over a period of almost five hundred years," said Dr. Wosk. In making this donation, Dr. Wosk noted that Emily Carr "has become a symbol of the future of art development, both within our province and beyond our borders. It is a home, a hearth to many: a sanctuary where creativity reigns."
