Scheduled : UBC Library’s Digital Projects & Services and IT teams are pleased to announce a significant update to the Open Collections website, to launch on July 27, 2021, 21:00 PT. Based on feedback and usage data collected since Open Collections first launched in 2015, this update is designed to enhance the performance and usability of the item-level pages as well as improve Google Scholar and public search engine indexing.

To remain in line with UBC IT Web Services requirements and policies and current industry standards, this update will also mark the end of support for Internet Explorer (IE) 11 and below. Users visiting Open Collections on these browsers will be presented with a reduced-functionality version of the site and prompted to use an alternative browser.
