UCW Library launches new Virtual Drop-In service

UCW Library launches new Virtual Drop-In service

While everyone continues to work and study from home, University Canada West’s library is working hard to create new ways for students to reach out and get help directly from a librarian.

The library this week introduced Virtual Drop-In Office Hours for students who have a quick question for one of UCW’s librarians.

The drop-in hours are offered twice a week and are available to any UCW student who has a question the library can help with – like questions on APA citation, research and accessing the library resources. 

“Anything library-related, we’re here to help,” said Jennifer Pride, UCW’s Undergraduate Liaison Librarian.

For the Summer 2020 Term, the Virtual Drop-In Office Hours are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 pm PDT and Fridays from 9 to 11 am PDT. The hours may be adjusted for the Fall Term.

Students can access the Virtual Drop-In by clicking on the Library tab in the MyUCW Student Portal. The link to the Microsoft Teams session will be available during the allotted times. The service is operating on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can click on the link to be allowed into the Teams lobby until a librarian becomes available.
