The main UBC Library Homepage provides access to library-wide services and collections, including the catalogue, online databases and journals, and many local digitization projects.UBC Library wants to ensure that students and researchers can use this page to easily find their way to relevant, high quality content.  In order to improve its homepage design the Library is gathering feedback from members of the UBC community (students, faculty, staff, alumni and those with an affiliation to the University) through an online survey.

Please visit  to fill out the survey.  It will be available until April 20, 2012 and should only take between ten and fifteen minutes to complete. To provide additional feedback on the homepage, please contact John Chan, Interaction Designer, UBC Library Systems and Information Technology.

As part of UBC Library’s commitment to enhance student spaces, we have recently renovated the third level in Koerner Library.

We are now looking for feedback from our users on whether the space meets their needs.

The Library has released a multiple part survey, asking a series of questions on four different days to assess your satisfaction with the newly renovated space. The questions will be released on April 12, 13, 16, and 17. Survey respondents will have the opportunity to enter to win a $25 iTunes giftcard. However, responses will only be counted once per question, to a total of four possible entries. 

  • Part 1 – April 12 - Thanks for responding!
  • Part 2 – April 13 – Thanks for responding!
  • Part 3 – April 16 – Thanks for responding!
  • Part 4 – April 17 - Thanks for responding!

The new Koerner space, which opened to the public this week, features more user-centered spaces to promote informal learning and collaboration. For questions about the survey, contact Library Communications.
