Simon Neame, Associate University Librarian / Director, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, UBC Library
UBC Library provides learning support for students across campus in all faculties and departments. Library services and programs that directly support student learning and success include, but are not limited to, online and in-class instruction and tutorials to develop library and information literacy skills, research support, and workshops. UBC Vantage College students can access these services in the same way that any and all students can. However, library services are not always customized or targeted to the specific learning needs of international, multilingual students.
For our pilot project, a co-op student from SLAIS, the iSchool at UBC, supervised by a librarian at UBC Library, and in collaboration with the faculty and students at Vantage College, will develop online and classroom-based instructional resources to support Vantage College student success specifically, and all international, multilingual students at UBC more broadly, to take advantage of a suite of resources and services offered by UBC Library.
