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.

The latest display at UBC Education Library features resources supporting the Core Competencies in BC Education.  One side of the display highlights professional books and the other side, picture books.  Each picture book includes a bookmark highlighting which Core Competency it links to.

What changed? A few of the updates include: Collaboration has been added as a second sub-competency to the Communication Core Competency, the second Thinking sub-competency is now Critical and Reflective Thinking (not just Critical Thinking) and the third Personal and Social sub-competency is now Social Awareness and Responsibility (not just Social Responsibility).

Please visit our Core Competencies Booklists if you’re unable to make it to our display in person or would like to browse our curated lists of resources from home.  Printed copies of these booklists are also available at the service desk.

The display is located just outside the Young Learners Library, Main Level, UBC Education Library and will be up until the end of February 2020.

UBC Education Library’s newest display theme is Graphic Novels.  Come by and check them out!
