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.

SMC library account:
Please contact St. Mark's library staff to set up a library account.  

UBC library account:
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 your SMC/CCC email address. You will be given instructions for signing in to Open Athens to access UBC online resources.  

Reserve Material

When requested, the library can place items on Reserve. Reserve materials are for Library Use Only. Students can make an appointment to be in the library to access these materials.

Library Instruction

Our Library Research Workshop can be delivered in 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 two weeks in advance of the date you wish to have the Workshop presented.

Please encourage your students to check the Library Guides and Help page or contact library staff directly if they need library assistance.

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.
