With branches in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Mission campuses, the library’s collection has been selected to support the programs and courses taught at UCFV, and currently contains over 168,000 items including print and electronic books, journals, newspapers, government publications, videotapes, and more. The library subscribes to a widevariety of online article indexes, some of which contain the full text of the articles themselves. The catalogue lists not only the items physically housed in the campus libraries, but also a growing collection of websites of use to students and faculty.
