Effective March 1, 2017, Xwi7xwa Library, in collaboration with the First Nations House of Learning, is moving lower used materials to one of two locations:
- Low use materials will be housed in the ASRS (Automated Storage & Retrieval System) at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, and will be available for same-day turn around.
- Lowest use material will move to Library PARC, UBC’s preservation and print repository on South Campus, with retrieval times of 48 hours or less.
Users can request materials from alternate locations using the the Library catalogue.
The Xwi7xwa Library is a centre for academic and community Indigenous scholarship. These collection shifts allow the Library to make use of additional library storage space to promote effective and efficient access to historical, as well as contemporary, published and printed material while at the same time providing additional flexible student learning areas in the library.
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to improve spaces and services for faculty, services and the community.
If you have any questions about the changes, contact Ann Doyle, Xwi7xwa librarian, at 604-822-2385.
