About UBC Library’s Digital Colouring Books

Experience history at the tip of your pencil crayons! UBC Library’s digital colouring books aim to inspire creativity and spark curiosity through the art found in our digital and physical collections. We are joining the New York Academy of Medicine Library and others to offer this unique way to engage with library content.

This year’s digital colouring book celebrates conservation and sustainability and features images from the B.C. Historical Books collection in UBC Library’s Open Collections.
