Services for Alumni

Because of COVID-19, the UFV Libraries are closed indefinitely, but we are making limited parts of our physical collections available to alumni through our Select & Collect service. Book drops are open 24 x 7 for returning items; items will be placed in quarantine for a period of time before being checked in - any fines accrued during this time will be cleared from your account. 

For other library service updates related to COVID-19, please see the UFV Library Blog.
