St. Mark's College, Theological Schools and UBC Library Borrowing 

Current faculty have borrowing rights to St. Mark’s College, Vancouver School of Theology and Regent College, as well as UBC library.

To obtain an SMC library card:
Please contact St. Mark's library staff to set up a library card/account.  

To obtain a UBC library card:
If you wish to open a UBC library account or to renew your current account, please contact [email protected] with your current account number (if you have one), mailing address, phone number and home email address. Faculty use UBC’s Standard Library Login for accessing UBC online resources. 

Reserve Material

When requested, the library can place items on Reserve, allowing students to borrow these for up to 5 days. 

Library Instruction

Our Library Research Workshop can be delivered online to your class. The Workshop details effective research strategies, demonstrates accessing print and e-books and articles in databases, and concludes with answering student’s questions. The pdf file used in the Workshop can be put up on your Canvas Course if you wish. Please contact the library at least a week in advance of the date you wish to have the Workshop presented.

Please encourage your students to contact library staff if they need library assistance. As well, the Library Guides and Help page has helpful information.

Requests for Purchase

Faculty are invited to request the purchase of material to be included in the library’s collection. Although not all requests can be fulfilled, the library will make every effort to purchase recommended material that falls within its collection mandate.
