Notice on our Library Services

Alert: Precautionary visitor restrictions to our cancer centres are now in effect. Before coming to your appointment, please read important information here: COVID-19 & cancer treatments.

All BC Cancer Library sites and Cancer Information Centres are closed until further notice.

Physical circulation of books has restarted! We are offering mail delivery of books to staff at all sites, as well as curbside pick-up for staff at the Vancouver site. Items loaned are not to enter the clinical environments. Interlibrary loans to and from BC Cancer are still temporarily suspended. 

 

​Healthcare does not stop and neither does the library. We continue to support patients and staff, providing reference, research, document delivery and more from a virtual platform. The library is still monitoring our email and phones during our regular Monday-Friday hours of operation. 

Thank you for your support and understanding during this temporary closure. Remember, you can still access our digital collections of journals, ebooks, and other evidence-based online database resources, 24/7!



 The BC Cancer library system consists of one central library at Vancouver Centre (VC), and branches in Abbotsford (AC), Kelowna (SAHCSI), Prince George (CN), Surrey (FVC), and Victoria (VIC). All centres have a collection of patient resources in a Cancer Information Centre (CIC), and most centres have a professional collection on site. Professional resources purchased for the CN are housed in the adjacent UHNBC Library.
