UBC Education Library is pleased to announce a new series of themed booklists on topics related to teaching, learning, and children’s literature. The UBC Education Library Booklists offer an entry point to the collection by highlighting suggested books on a variety of topics. Each list features titles about current and historical topics in education, pedagogy, and the BC K-12 curriculum.

Depending on the theme, you will see a list of suggested teaching resources in print or electronic format, picture books, and information books. Topic-specific keyword suggestions accompany each list to help find more titles on the topic in the collection. All books featured on the UBC Education Library Booklists are available at the Education Library, either in print or online.

The booklists are a work in progress. New lists will be released roughly twice per week throughout the year. Check them out today and let us know what you think! And, follow @ubcedlib on Twitter to keep up to date on new booklists as they are available.

UBC Education Library Booklist handouts are available in print at the Service Desk for quick reference.

These lists are also available as a PDF handout if you’re looking for a quick list of books as a jumping-off point on a certain topic.  You can find these print copies at the UBC Education Library Service Desk.

Thanks to Jennifer Abel, Wendy Traas, Emily Fornwald, Carmen Marchal and Elena P. for all their hard work creating these lists and handouts.

Science Literacy Week (September 16-22, 2019) is an annual celebration of science in Canada, in which libraries, universities, museums and other partners offer events and displays to highlight research and learning at our institutions.

This year focuses on the OCEAN, a perfect theme for a country that borders the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. Ocean research covers a breadth of disciplines, including oceanography, coastal communities and livelihoods, marine biodiversity, climate change, health, law, transportation, and more. In addition, the ocean inspires many beautiful works of fiction and poetry.

All branches of the UBC Library on both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses will showcase items from their rich collection of ocean-related books, films, and even puppets.

Come and see what’s on offer at the following locations:

  • Asian Library
  • Biomedical Branch Library
  • David Lam Library
  • Education Library
  • Koerner Library
  • Law Library
  • Music, Art and Architecture Library
  • Okanagan Library
  • Rare Books and Special Collections
