UBC Okanagan Library

The UBC Okanagan Campus Library offers information and research services to students, faculty, and the local community. To support all undergraduate and graduate programs offered on campus, as well as student and faculty research, our collections include books, journals, and films. The Library also provides an extensive electronic research network of article indexes, journals, e-books, images, and data.

The Library enables students to conduct research in the Library and off campus. The Library website provides access to resources held in all UBC Libraries including the UBC Vancouver campus. Library materials are freely available to students and faculty from either campus. The interlibrary loan service provides access to additional resources from around the world.

Subject librarians consult with students to develop research strategies and to locate, evaluate, and use information. Librarians also provide workshops in research skills and specialized resources, and consult with faculty to support curriculum development and research endeavours.

The Library provides a variety of spaces and many types of technology to support studying, coursework, and research. Spaces in the Library include student computers and printers, an instructional lab, two silent study rooms, reading lounges, private study carrels, collaborative work spaces, and group project rooms. Laptops, digital cameras, and technology equipment are available for borrowing at no cost. Library hours vary throughout the year. During the term, the Library is open daily and late most evenings.

The Writing and Research Centre offers writing support for all undergraduate students working on any kind of writing assignment for class. Consultants, available via appointments, can assist writers with various stages of the writing process.

The Centre for Scholarly Communications offers one-on-one consultations on written and oral communications, workshops on a wide range of topics and scholarly genres, and communities of practice. This service is available to UBC graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff and faculty.

The Innovation Library is located at the Kelowna Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library. It provides access to UBC Library electronic resources for students, faculty and community members, and supports community-based research and service learning.

The Inclusive Technology Lab is a space to use and experiment with assistive technology. There are assistive technology workstations, a distraction-free study space, and an accessible group study space. Assistive technology can also be borrowed from the library.

Students, faculty and staff may use their UBCcard to borrow items for free from both Okanagan and Vancouver campus Libraries. Consult UBCcard for information on obtaining cards. For further information, see the Branch website
