In case you missed it, a new modular storage facility is being built to accommodate the future growth of the University of British Columbia’s Library collections. Some of the top FAQs of the new BC Integrated Research Library (IRL) include:
Will students and researchers be able to access the IRL like any other UBC Library branch? Is the IRL open to non-UBC students and researchers? How will items be selected for the IRL? How quickly will items be retrieved? And, of course, the biggest question: When will the IRL be completed?
