New Ethical Review Board established

The UBC Office for the Ethical Review Board -- Clinical Trials, has been established in the research pavilion at Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre.

Part of UBC's Office of Research Services, the new office aims to decrease the turnaround time for the ethical review process, says Susan Chunick, office manager.

An alumna with a master's degree in Health Planning and Administration, Chunick was also head of the Physiotherapy Program in UBC's School of Rehabilitation Sciences from 1984-86. She recently worked for ICBC as a customer satisfaction and market research manager.

For more information about the office, contact Chunick at 604-875-4149.

UNBC, UBC to offer joint basic degree

UBC has developed a joint undergraduate engineering degree program with the University of Northern British Columbia.

The four-and-a-half year Environmental Engineering Program will train students to assess environmental and economic factors in future developments. Graduates will receive a Bachelor of Applied Science awarded jointly by both institutions.

Students will complete the first two years at UNBC, followed by two years of study at UBC. They will return to UNBC for their final semester.

The degree will be offered beginning in fall 2002.

Library adds Chinese journals

With the recent acquisition of the China Journal Database, UBC's Asian Library has become the first institution in North America with on-line full-text access to 290 journals on Chinese literature, history, language and philosophy published in China from 1994-2001.

To date, the resource has only been available in academic libraries in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The acquisition of the China Journal Database brings the Asian Library closer to its goal of introducing Web-based resources in Chinese, Japanese and Korean on campus.

Head librarian Eleanor Yuen plans to add major Japanese and Korean databases to the library's on-line resources soon.
