*      A separate entry must be used for library articles. For example, if someone gets skis+skins+boots+1 guidebook+1 map, you need one entry for the skis+skins+boots and one entry for the guidebook + map. As with gear, if someone has borrowed two or more library articles (or a combination) and returns only some of them, mark that entry as returned and make a new entry, which should contain the books/maps they they still have and the deposit that we still hold for those books/maps.

*      The default period for letting out books and maps is be 2 weeks. If people come back and ask for an extension, this can be granted ONCE (for a total of 4 weeks). If this is a high use guidebook of which we have only one, don't give an extension and consider only letting people borrow it for a week. Examples of these books are: Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis (the new 3rd edition), Alpine Select, Scrambles, Climbers Guide to Squamish (McKlane), Freedom of the Hills (new edition), Skaha Rockclimbs, etc. If people keep on begging for extensions, kindly suggest them to invest their $20 deposit in a shiny new guidebook of their own.

==List of Purchases==
  
The VOC Library currently has an annual budget of 200 CAD. The budget is mostly spent on guidebooks, although the purchase of tearproof/waterproof maps might be considered from time to time. In general, we purchase a combination of guidebooks of local interest, and guidebooks for farther places. The idea is that the local guidebooks would be useful if you are new in town or getting into a new activity, others will probably end up buying their own copies of these guidebooks (or borrow from friends). The guidebooks for farther places are useful for people considering a roadtrip or longer trip and in order to spark curiosity about faraway places.

[[Category:Clubroom]]

Latest revision as of 22:20, 26 November 2017

The club has a reasonably extensive selection of books including hiking, climbing, and skiing guidebooks as well as instructional manuals and more. In 2017, we inventoried the majority of our collection, which is now listed here (books and maps only – not including periodicals, and journals). Drop by the clubroom to browse.

Guidelines: How to Use the VOC Library

For members

If you find a guidebook/magazine/map that you would like to borrow, locate an exec member that can sign it out for you. Quartermaster helpers are also able to do this. The deposit for each library article is $20 (no exceptions) and the borrowing period is 2 weeks. Maps should NOT be taken on trips (except the tearproof ones).

The VOC's book collection is searchable below on this page. If you don't find a book here, we probably don't have it (as of 2017), but you can always take a look in the clubroom in case it was missed during our inventory process.

For exec members

  • All library articles (includes books, guidebooks, magazines, maps, VOC journals, other journals, videos, DVD’s etc) should be checked out using the Gearmaster, and assigned as library articles (not gear!).
  • A separate entry must be used for library articles. For example, if someone gets skis+skins+boots+1 guidebook+1 map, you need one entry for the skis+skins+boots and one entry for the guidebook + map. As with gear, if someone has borrowed two or more library articles (or a combination) and returns only some of them, mark that entry as returned and make a new entry, which should contain the books/maps that they still have and the deposit that we still hold for those books/maps.
  • Make sure to write the title of the book
  • The deposit for each library article is $20 (no exceptions)
  • The deposit should be deposited in the exec drawer, in the black folder, under "library". It should NOT go with the gear money.
  • The "library folder" will not be used anymore. At all.
  • Maps should not be taken on trips, except for the waterproof/tearproof ones (Callaghan, Garibaldi, etc). Please tell this to people every time someone borrows a map. They should photocopy the section that they need or just use it for reference.
  • The default period for letting out books and maps is be 2 weeks. If people come back and ask for an extension, this can be granted ONCE (for a total of 4 weeks). If this is a high use guidebook of which we have only one, don't give an extension and consider only letting people borrow it for a week. Examples of these books are: Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis (the new 3rd edition), Alpine Select, Scrambles, Climbers Guide to Squamish (McKlane), Freedom of the Hills (new edition), Skaha Rockclimbs, etc. If people keep on begging for extensions, kindly suggest them to invest their $20 deposit in a shiny new guidebook of their own.

Guidelines: How to Use the VOC Map Collection

Quick Guide

  • Find out which map sheet you need (see below).
  • Start following the red numbers on the cabinets, which go from most likely to find map here (1) to least likely to find map (4). This might require some digging. The cabinets have a note on them giving a rough list of the contents.
  • Once you’ve found your map, locate an exec to lend it out to you, and pay the $20 deposit per map (to be returned to you when you return it)
  • Maps should not be taken on trips under any circumstances (except the tear proof ones), since they damage easily. Please photocopy the map that you need and return the map to the appropriate location.

How to Figure Out Which Map You Need

Let’s assume you are looking for a 1:50,000 map. The “map sheet code” should look something like 92J/3. The code of the map is indicated in most guidebooks, or you can look it up by place name (http://geonames.nrcan.gc.ca/search/search_e.php), by latitude and longitude (http://atlas.nrcan.gc.ca/site/english/maps/topo/map) or you can locate it on the index map (http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Image:Bc_150dpi.jpg). Hint: Maps in SW BC are typically in the 92 series.

Some common 1:50,000 maps you might be looking for:

  • VOC Huts: 92J/3 (Brew), 92J/10 (Phelix), 92G/15 (Sphinx), 92J/11 (Harrison)
  • North Shore: 92G/7 (Mt. Seymour), 92G/6 (Howe Sound Crest Trail)
  • Garibaldi PP: 92G/14 &15 (Paul Ridge, Elfin Lakes, Mt. Garibaldi, Garibaldi Neve), 92J/2 (Wedge), + excellent tear-proof map by the library
  • Callaghan: 92J/3, + excellent tear-proof map by the library)
  • Duffey: 92J/8 (Cerise, Joffrey, Matier, Marriot, Rohr)
  • Coquihalla: 92H/11 (Needle, Zoa, Zupjok, Yak)

Note: the VOC also has some other types of maps, such as 1:250,000 maps, index maps, marine charts, forestry maps, road maps etc. Finding these might require significant digging – look at the contents notes on the cabinets to try and find the right cabinet. The tear proof maps are typically kept on the shelves of the library.

Online Mapping

As a recommended alternative, if you’d rather print out the map (or a section of it) or you can’t find the map you need in the VOC Collection, the maps are available online for FREE, and with MORE detail! (1:20,000) . For more information, check out Online_mapping.


List of Purchases

The VOC Library currently has an annual budget of 300 CAD. The budget is mostly spent on guidebooks, although the purchase of tearproof/waterproof maps might be considered from time to time. In general, we purchase a combination of guidebooks of local interest, and guidebooks for farther places. The idea is that the local guidebooks would be useful if you are new in town or getting into a new activity, others will probably end up buying their own copies of these guidebooks (or borrow from friends). The guidebooks for farther places are useful for people considering a roadtrip or longer trip and in order to spark curiosity about faraway places.
