The UBC Law Library has a new guide available at providing an annotated bibliography for law students and graduates investigating non-traditional positions that do not directly involve the practice of law (such as in fields of business, publishing, real estate, the arts, education, social services, and countless other areas).


Food For Fines – An event brought to you by the AMS and the UBC Library.

Pay off your library fines with food instead of cash! Clean out your cupboards before leaving for the holiday AND clean up your library debt at the same time. All borrowers are eligible, whether they are students, staff, alumni, faculty, or community members.

From November 29th to Dec 3rd, 2004, all borrowers with library fines are eligible for fine waivers. For every non-perishable food item you donate, $2 of your fine will be waived to a maximum of $20. All donations will be given to the
Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.


Q- Can I apply my donation toward future fines?
A – No, we are only able to apply a donation to an existing fine.

Q – Who do I speak to about having my donation applied against my Library fine?
A – Staff at the Circulation Desks at any UBC Library branch will be able to help you.

Q – What types of non-perishable food items are most needed by the Food Bank?
A – Soups, Stews, Chili, Canned Tuna, Canned Salmon, Canned Meats, Beans, Peanut Butter, Pastas, Baby Food, Powdered Milk, Nuts, Dried Fruits

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

The UBC Library is hoping that most users will be using VPN as their primary method for accessing Library resources from off-campus (as an alternative to using the proxy server).

VPN is a service provided by ITServices.

• once a network connection is established, the user is essentially “on campus”
• remote URLs are unchanged, allowing links to be specified the same on-campus as off-campus
CWL (Campus-Wide Login) used for authentication (i.e. no barcode/PINs)

Information from VPN (Virtual Private Network)

The UBC Wireless Network offers free high performance VPN (Virtual Private Network) access to protect your communications. VPN servers employ encryption and other security measures to ensure that any data sent on the wireless network will not be intercepted.

You can connect to the VPN servers via the wireless network by using a VPN client. The VPN client encrypts any traffic between your computer and UBC’s VPN servers to safeguard your communication to UBC.
