Collections form the heart of UBC Library.
Recently, the UBC Library Collection Enrichment Fund helped support the licencing purchase of Elsevier FrontList, which increased access to 30,000 e books in 23 subject areas for UBC Library patrons. This resulted in 150,000 chapters being downloaded within just a few months of availability.
UBC Library’s ability to continue to focus on uncovering hidden collections, acquiring rare and significant works, and to develop an innovative preservation program is integral to its mission. Your support will ensure that we can offer the rich collections and services required of a top-tier academic library in the 21st century.
