Due to scheduled maintenance work, some Library website service will be unavailable Sunday, March 9 from 10:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.

Services affected include the Library catalogue, My Library account, the room booking system, events calendar system, barcode/PIN authentication and off-campus login. 

The outage is expected to end at midnight on Sunday. 

Thank you for your patience. 

Please be advised that UBC Library’s online catalogue system will undergo system maintenance today, October 31, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

During this time, the online catalogue is expected to remain operational but intermittent outages might occur.

We apologize for any inconvenience – thank you in advance for your understanding.

Beginning January 2013, users accessing the Library’s online resources from off campus through myVPN will need to use the EZproxy tool instead.

When accessing a journal or database, EZproxy will automatically determine whether users are valid UBC patrons. Users can simply provide their login credentials (i.e. CWL or Library Barcode/PIN) to access Library resources remotely. Users can login to EZproxy at any time while visiting the Library website by clicking the “Login” button on the navigation bar.

The myVPN service is maintained by UBC – other UBC services available via myVPN will not be affected by the Library changes. 

However, myVPN service requires users to use specific software, while the EZproxy tool can be used without any additional software installations.

Visit the Use the Library site for instructions on connecting from home. For electronic resources troubleshooting or technical assistance, please use the Contact Us form.

If you have any questions regarding the change, please contact Teresa Lee, E-resource & Access Librarian, at teresa.lee@ubc.ca
