RETURNING BOOKS AFTER HOURS
Library materials can be returned to the library’s Circulation Desk during open hours. There is also a book return bin just outside the east entrance of St. Andrew’s Hall. With the fall semester the book return bin will move to the back (or east) entrance of the VST building. Items can be returned through the book drop at any time.
Current VST students can obtain library items not held on campus by accessing the interlibrary loan (ILL) service offered by the UBC Library system. ILL online request forms from the UBC library site can be found by going to http://services.library.ubc.ca/borrowing-services/ill/. Non-student patrons wishing to locate items not held locally should contact their local public library branch.
