It has been a busy and exciting year for the library! I started my role as University Librarian in September, and have already had the pleasure of meeting many colleagues, library supporters, and library directors from across Canada. I hope to meet many more in the coming months.

The library has made improvements to student spaces, with renovations to two library branches over the year. We added to our electronic collections, and acquired several interesting collections, including the Kelmscott Chaucer and the Weynton journal. We have made significant advances to connecting research to community partners, and engaged with Indigenous partners as well. I encourage you to read more about our activities in our recently published 2016/17 annual report.
Thank you for your continued support of the Library, and best wishes to you throughout the holiday season. I hope to see you in 2018!

UPDATE: Seems to be working again.

Unfortunately, the Library catalogue is down. UBC IT has a bulletin HERE.

Other discovery services, like Summon, are working – but any links from Summon results to the Cataloge do not work.

Watch UBC IT Bulletins and this post for updates.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
