As a new school year begins, UBC Library is undergoing significant changes to transform into a 21st-century library for faculty, students and the community.
As part of this process, the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre is working to provide a new multi-service desk and upgraded spaces for programs offered by the Chapman Learning Commons and its partners. Construction is scheduled to begin in early September and end in December 2012, with new spaces scheduled to open in early January 2013.
Changes include the temporary move of Reference services from the third to the fourth floor, and making space in the Qualicum Room for construction. The third floor of the Learning Centre, particularly the Qualicum Room and adjacent areas, will be affected during the fall term as construction proceeds.
The changes are examined in a Ubyssey article entitled “Construction to start during busiest hours in Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.”
We are grateful for your understanding and patience during this time, and we will bring you updates at library.ubc.ca as they become available. For more information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “UBC Library changes” in the subject line.
