Research Help

In Person

The Research Help counter, located at the Information Desk on the 3rd floor of the Music, Art and Architecture Library, is closed for the summer and will reopen for Winter Term I on September 3, 2024.

During the summer, UBC students, faculty, and staff can book a reference appointment with the appropriate subject librarian. Librarians’ contact information can be found in the Specialized help section below, as well as in the subject-specific MAA Library Research Guides.
