The physical location of the David Lam Library and Canaccord Learning Commons will be closed from 5pm Friday, March 20th until Monday, April 6th. During this time Librarians and staff will be working remotely to continue to support the UBC Sauder School of Business. Access to our large collection of electronics resources such as databases, e-books, journals will continue to be available online.
We are expanding remote services to accommodate the transition to an online learning environment and this guide is designed to provide you with additional information on Library operations and services at this time. We will be updating this guide as additional information is made available.
Check out this Online Learners Guide by the UBC Learning Commons for tips on how to get most out of the online learning environment.
