As of May 1, UBC Library’s services at St. Paul’s Hospital and the BC Children’s and Women’s Health Centre are changing. Please reference our announcement posted on our website the week of April 17 for more information.

The two spaces will continue to be operated by UBC Faculty of Medicine and will be accessible to UBC faculty and students for research and study.

The Library continues to provide the following services to UBC faculty, staff and students:

  • Online access to UBC Library resources for UBC faculty, staff and students remains uninterrupted by these changes.
  • Inter-library loans and document delivery and recall requests for UBC faculty, staff and students can be picked up at either the Biomedical Branch Library (Diamond Health Care Centre, 2775 Laurel Street, Floor 2) or at the Woodward Library at the UBC Vancouver campus (2198 Health Sciences Mall).
  • For reference and research queries, please contact the Woodward Library at 604-822-4440.

UBC Affiliated Hospital Staff can apply for a Hospital Staff Card by visiting the Biomedical Branch Library or Woodward Library. For more information on library cards, visit the Library services website.

Borrowers are encouraged to return items to the Biomedical Branch Library, Woodward Library or any UBC Library branch.

On-site signage at both hospital branches will be posted to redirect UBC faculty, staff and students. We appreciate the patience of our library users during this transition.

Further questions or comments about the hospital library branches can be directed to Linda Ong, Director, Communications and Marketing at UBC Library at library.communications@ubc.ca

Last week, UBC Library announced to its library staff that the service model at St. Paul’s Hospital Library and the BC Children’s and Women’s Health Centre (Hamber) Library would change effective April 30, 2013. This direction was first announced in May 2012 and over the intervening months various meetings and consultations have been held.

We have received emails and questions from faculty, staff and students with regards to what the future model will be for these two hospital library branches. 

Moving forward, a new service model will be established that incorporates access to electronic collections, a core print collection, on-site librarian office hours and access to research and reference services located at Woodward Library. Library staff are also available at our Biomedical Branch at the Diamond Health Care Centre.

Online access to UBC Library resources for UBC faculty and students remains uninterrupted by these changes.

The spaces will continue to be operated by UBC Faculty of Medicine and will be accessible to UBC faculty and students for research and study.

We appreciate the patience of faculty, staff and students during the transition..

Should you have further questions or comments about the hospital library branches, please contact Linda Ong, Director, Communications and Marketing at library.communications@ubc.ca.
