Science Literacy Week (September 16-22, 2019) is an annual celebration of science in Canada, in which libraries, universities, museums and other partners offer events and displays to highlight research and learning at our institutions.
This year focuses on the OCEAN, a perfect theme for a country that borders the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. Ocean research covers a breadth of disciplines, including oceanography, coastal communities and livelihoods, marine biodiversity, climate change, transportation, and more. In addition, many works of fiction are set on or near the ocean. All branches of the UBC Library will showcase items from their rich collection of ocean-related books, films, and even puppets.
Come and see what’s on offer at David Lam Library. Some of our titles include:
