ScienceDirect => Off-Campus Access Blocked

EZproxy (off-campus access, where you log in with your CWL) has been blocked by ScienceDirect. We are working to get the block lifted for the weekend.  Stay Tuned!

You’ve heard the expression, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”  Come by the library and see what happens when you put it into practice!

Please join us for this very fun and very mysterious UBC Education Library Collection Spotlight event.  “Blind Date with a Book” will feature titles of various themes and genres.  The undercover books will be totally wrapped with only a few clues written on the outside.  Are you looking for a “Blind Date with a Short Story?” or perhaps a “Blind Date with a Book of Poetry?”  There will be a multitude of books to choose from.  Come by and take a mystery book home today!

This special Spotlight runs from February 7-19, 2020.
