BCI RDC - Victoria branch

This facility is located on the campus of the University of Victoria and is affiliated to the BCI-RDC. It was opened in the summer of 2006 to alleviate the enormous travel time burden faced by University of Victoria researchers attempting to do their work by making the 4-5 hour ferry and car/bus trip to Vancouver.

It is located on the ground floor of the McPherson Library and offers 6 workstations with ample space and dual monitors. It currently operates on a variable schedule which is worked out monthly to suit the needs of researchers within the constraints of staff availability.


Over the course of 2012-2013, the branch will be making a transition from workstations to a thin client/fast server environment.
