General Information

The UFV campus card is a single card acting as a combination student ID, library card, printing, and photocopying card. 

Campus cards must be presented in order to borrow material from the library. A replacement charge of $10.00 is levied for lost cards.

All borrowers are also issued a PIN or personal identification number, which is used to renew books, place books on hold, and check your library record.  PIN numbers are issued in the library.
