In conjunction with Xerox, UBC Library is installing new printers and copiers across three branches this month – the beginning of a rollout that will continue into the new year. 

Better and faster machines were installed in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre as part of a test installation. Beginning the week of December 4, the installations will accelerate, with all public units being replaced across the following branches:

Date of installation Library
Week of December 4  Koerner Library 
Week of December 11  Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
Week of December 18  Woodward Library
TBA in new year
  • Asian Library
  • Biomedical Branch Library
  • David Lam Library
  • Education Library
  • Eric Hamber Library
  • Law Library
  • Music Library
  • Xwi7Xwa Library
  • St. Paul Library
  • Robson Square Library

The installation crew is installing one machine at a time to minimize the impact on users. However, certain units may be unusable during installation times. Those wishing to print or copy should look for printed signs in the Library to point them to unaffected areas or visit the Library website for a list of copy and print stations

These installations are being implemented partly due to feedback from users who offered feedback about printing and copying services at the Library. We value your input – if you have feedback on the new machines or the installation process, please direct your comments to the General Queries contact form or tweet @ubclibrary (hashtag #ubcnewprinters).
