Gordon Yusko

Librarian and Former Assistant Director of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre


In his role as Assistant Director, Gordon Yusko represented the UBC Irving K. Barber Learning Centre on the Steering Committee between 2013 and 2019.  His contributions helped to ensure stable funding and oversight that prioritized the needs of Indigenous community partners.  Although also involved in numerous other projects and programs, it was the Indigitization Program where he felt the most grounded, because of the work with other very creative, passionate team members and also by seeing positive concrete results in Indigenous communities.
