The following brief video introduces the main features of the UBC Library homepage.
To access many of the Library's services you will need to obtain your UBCcard. This is also your Library card. Apply at the beginning of term, before you actually need it. The carding office processes requests at the start of each business day.
Keep in Mind
As a UBC student, you have full access to the wide range of print and electronic collections through the Library from home, as well as in person. To get instant access to online journals, indexes & databases, and other Library licensed resources from off-campus locations you can use Library Access Browser Extension OR EZproxy.
1) Add the Browser Extension for Access.
2) Select University of British Columbia.
3) Start searching! When off-campus, Library Access will let you know when you are on a website that the library has access to.
4) Login with your UBC CWL (campus wide login)
If you live at a distance from a UBC campus you can register for delivery services. You will need to do this before requesting home delivery of print materials or interlibrary loans services. To learn more about home delivery and interlibrary loans, click the Your Library at Home tab on the top left side of this guide.
