Library

Website: www.ufv.ca/library/

The UCFV Library is committed to providing students and faculty with access to the knowledge of the world through print, electronic, and other media. 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 176,000 items including print and electronic books, journals, newspapers, government publications, videotapes, and more. The library subscribes to a wide variety 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. The library’s website provides links to the catalogues of other B.C. and Canadian libraries, so that if a desired item cannot be found in the UCFV collection, eligible users can request it through interlibrary loan.

Librarians teach orientation and research skills classes to all first year English and Communications students, and to other classes on request of faculty. Library staff are available in person, online, and by phone to provide individual help on research assignments, term papers, or class presentations.

Off-campus access to the full range of the library’s online resources is available to current UCFV students and faculty through the library website. Services to distance students are provided through the website, by telephone,  or email.

The UCFV library collections and facilities are open to the general public. A current library card is required to borrow materials. Students and faculty will be provided with cards; members of the community who would like to borrow materials may purchase a community borrower’s card for a $25 annual fee. Loan periods vary according to the type of material, and fines are charged on overdue items.
