Support the future of UBC libraries

About this unit

UBC Library is one of the top research libraries in Canada. Our rich collections have been shaped and enriched by gifts of many kinds.

Today we rely on a combination of endowments, cash gifts and collections to build on the margin of excellence that we strive to offer our users. Ongoing collaboration with supporters provide us not only an opportunity to enhance the services, spaces and resources, but also brings a variety of perspectives on how we can continue to ignite and maintain passion for learning between generations.

UBC Library welcomes thousands of students, researchers and community members each year, we are a destination for those on campus and home to world class collections.

With your help, we can ensure that UBC Library is able to respond to the changing educational and research needs, preserve rare and special collections and continue to provide information as widely and freely accessible.
