UBC Library

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 a full list of Library events, including those offered by the Library Research Commons and the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication, visit the Library event page

Subject Librarians are knowledgeable about resources in a particular discipline, and are here to assist you with your research.

As search experts, they can help you select appropriate databases and use them effectively and efficiently to save you time.

They can also refer you to appropriate services to meet your data management, digital scholarship, publishing, or writing needs.
