The Library at UBC’s Okanagan campus

The Library has always been the heart of the university academic experience – rich in resources covering diverse fields of study, and offering refuge for quiet study and reflection. Libraries are now being called upon to be a new kind of place for individuals to connect, create and collaborate, to use data and technology, and to discuss and present discoveries. In response to these changing needs, we are expanding our Library by creating a teaching and learning centre. What will be the centre’s defining characteristics? It will include a greater mix of individual and group study spaces, collaborative project spaces, and formal and informal learning spaces, as well as an array of digital technologies which will enhance the teaching, learning, and research experience. This dynamic space will inspire students to be leaders in their fields and in broader society.

Consider how your support could help change the way our community teaches, learns, and conducts research.
