Asian Library Remote Resources and Services

This guide supports Asian Library users as they study, teach and conduct research from home.

Asian Library Operations

Due to COVID-19, the Asian Library will remain closed until September 6, 2021. During this time, librarians and staff are working from home to continue supporting our users.

This guide will provide information about the Asian Library's operations and services at this time, including access to digital collections and research assistance. We will be updating this guide as additional information is made available.

The Library has launched an on-campus pick-up service since early July 2020. UBC students, faculty, and staff can now order items in the collection that are not available in electronic formats for pick-up at Koerner Library.

For updates with regards to UBC Library's space, online resources, and print collection during the closure, please visit the Library Service Update.

For information on e-resource access, see Connect to Library Resources. Also, check the eResources Blog for updates on known issues.
