At UBC’s Education Library, there is an emphasis on the study of education in the last 50 years, however material about the history of education from 1800 on is also collected.

There are vast arrays of historical texts and textbooks available on the lower level of the library. Although the collection is library use only and cannot be borrowed, patrons have direct access and can feel free to browse.

From the old 1950s Dick and Jane style reading and spelling books, to even older health, science and math books from the 1800s, I’m sure you’ll find the books in this section to be fascinating, informative and often humorous due to the now less than current content.  Many of them are also quite beautiful!

See you in the stacks!
