Our Users

students studying

At UBC Library, our programs and services reflect a growing user community of students, faculty, staff, community borrowers, visiting scholars and guests. Beyond physical spaces, the Library’s presence can be felt in classrooms and labs and in B.C. communities, through in-person and virtual connections. Our capacity to connect people with information and knowledge remains a cornerstone of our commitment to our users.
