Panorama view of UBC's Robson Square campus 

Research libraries across North America are evolving, and UBC Library is no exception. The Library is undergoing significant changes to transform its service models, and has announced a number of changes, some of which will take effect this fall.

One change involves the Library’s Robson Square branch, which closes in its current form on August 31. Two of its most accessed services – online access to Library collections and book & articles deliveries – will continue, as will the popular Robson Reading Series. Other services including reference assistance will continue to be available online or at Point Grey campus libraries.

UBC Library would like to thank those who have used Robson Square Library, and we will keep you updated on developments. For more information, please e-mail and include “UBC Library changes” in the subject line.
