LIBRARY POLICIES AMID COVID-19

Due to the quickly evolving situation with COVID-19, UBC Library branches across the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses are closed until April 6, at which time the situation will be reassessed. The library continues to provide access to electronic resources and librarian support for research, teaching and learning. You can stay up to date with the Library’s services and resources at https://services.library.ubc.ca/covid-19-response/

Although library buildings are closed to the public, librarians and library staff are working remotely. Please continue to reach out to your liaison librarians or to the Education Library’s general email ed.lib@ubc.ca with any questions, or if you would like to discuss librarian support for research and instruction at this time. We will also continue sharing updates and resources through Twitter @UBCEdLib

 

ELECTRONIC COURSE RESERVES MATERIALS

Given the recent announcement that all Summer Term 1 courses will be online, please contact your liaison librarian with purchase requests for online course materials. If needed, we can also explore the availability of electronic versions of course reserves materials currently in our print reserves collection.

 


NEW BOOKLISTS: ELECTRONIC RESOURCES

In response to current needs, we have created two new booklists, entirely dedicated to online resources. The lists include teacher resources, lesson planning books, picture books, and juvenile non-fiction to support lesson development from home. We have also included Open Access resources, so that parents, caregivers, and anyone else who is interested can find learning materials online for free.

Both lists are available at: https://blogs.ubc.ca/educationlibrarybooklists/electronic-resources/
