Teaching and Learning

Whether you are a student or a faculty member, the Library has a number of librarians who can assist you with your teaching and learning initiatives.

UBC Library provides our users with instruction that not only addresses how to access and use information resources, but also how to critically reflect on the information retrieved. Developing information literacy skills is a key component to all of our instruction.


  • Browse our subject-specific and general web guides and resources.
  • Contact your subject librarian for guidance on finding, accessing and incorporating research into their course assignments can find support from the Library.
  • Look at our TLEF-funded projects that support innovative teaching and learning across UBC.

  • Check out our Information Literacy Toolkit for Faculty and Instructors, created in partnership with UBC librarians, faculty members, and students, which was developed to support the creation of research assignments and instruction that address students’ information literacy levels and needs.
