Korean Books

Our Korean Librarian, Helen Kim, is on leave until the end of January 2016. We regret that support for Korean language related questions will be available for only 30 hours per week. Please note that the expected wait time for requests will slightly increase.

Please direct your reference related questions to Kyung Eun (Alex) Hur at korean.library.support@ubc.ca. Questions on walk-in basis and appointments are available on Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 4:30pm.

The 6th annual United Way and UBC Library Spelling Bee was held on October 13. The Lexicons (Ceremonies and Events) took the championship cup by spelling 17/20 of the challenging words correctly. Team members included Ellis Courtney, Helen Gabor, Christina Girardi, Sheila Jones, Melissa Picher Kelly, Sarah Pickstone, Matt Ramsey and Herbert Rosengarten.

Team Auto Correct (UBC Library) and last years winners, Hive Minds (UBC Press) tied for second place.

The Lexicons

The annual cross-campus event raises awareness for United Way, with all proceeds going to support UBC’s annual United Way campaign during the month of October. The teams were asked to spell words such as tintinnabulation, suffrutescent and gourmand.
