Library Preservation and Archives, aka Library PARC, is a new modular storage facility built to accommodate the future growth of collections at UBC Library. Located at UBC Vancouver’s South Campus (in the Research Precinct), PARC provides 2,280 square metres of high-density collection storage and can house about 1.6 million volumes. The facility also houses the University's Records Management Office, a staff work area and a publicly accessible reading room. Low-circulation items from the Library’s collections will be relocated to Library PARC, freeing up physical space at branches for other uses, including student and research services, study spaces and informal learning areas, multimedia labs, scholarly exchanges and more. The PARC is UBC's low use storage facility and its ASRS facility (robotic storage in the the IKBLC building) holds the medium use material.
