In this month’s issue of LibFOCUS, we’re excited to step forward into the fall season – always a dynamic time on campus.

Welcome back to students, faculty, staff

At UBC Library, the fall term is a highly anticipated and exciting time, as we gear up to introduce new and returning students and faculty to our services, spaces and collections. We’re participating in a number of campus-wide orientation events throughout September, as well as sharing Library information on social media – tips on studying, where to print, collections to check out, and more!

Explore newly digitized materials online

The UBC Library Digitization Centre has been hard at work over the summer! Several special collections and rare items are now available online, just in time for the start of the fall term.  

Did you know that UBC’s Education Library has a collection of historical textbooks? Visit in-person to explore these rare materials and learn more about what your grandparents would have studied during their fall semesters.
