UBC Jump Start is an intensive two-week program which provides new international students with academic preparation for university life.

Jump Start orientations are done in cohort groups for Arts, Applied Science, Business and Science and include one-hour library workshops taught by liaison librarians in those areas.

David Lam Librarians taught three of the thirteen library workshops offered this summer, introducing over 50 new Sauder students to the library collections and services which will support their research activities throughout their time at UBC.

Tomorrow, mining MEng students will meet me in Koerner 217 for a introductory workshop on mining engineering info. Here is the page we are going to use – http://guides.library.ubc.ca/mining_engineering

Although the library and learning commons are quiet during August, Lam librarians are working hard to prepare and update their instructional sessions for fall. Upcoming classes and orientations that we are currently working on include the MBA Precore, The MBA Core, the JumpStart orientation for international students, the Early Career Master’s orientation, and the MBA Exchange Program.
