cIRcle is a digital repository at the University of British Columbia (UBC), and is a service of the UBC Library, established in the spirit of the Library’s commitment to Open Access. cIRcle strives to ensure that UBC’s intellectual output is freely accessible online to the UBC community and beyond, and that all content is preserved for the long term.
