Library Research Commons

The UBC Library Research Commons  is an interdisciplinary, research-driven learning environment for graduate students that provides research support services by graduate students, for graduate students. It offers workshops and one-to-one assistance with citation management tools; two data analysis tools, for both quantitative and qualitative data; digital scholarship, GIS, and data services.  The space includes a Digital Scholarship Lab for research, experimentation, and collaboration as well as a welcoming space, including bookable rooms, for projects and presentations. It is located in the Walter C. Koerner Library on Levels 2, 4, and 5.

UBC Library provides a variety of workshops throughout the year. The workshops can be subject specific (e.g. searching health databases), general awareness (e.g. orientation to the library), or focused on building a scholarly profile (e.g. getting published, scholarly rights).  For an updated list of events, please visit the Research Commons.
