Services for Students in Mission and Hope

The UFV Libraries will remain closed for the foreseeable future, due to COVID-19. However, the library continues to provide online assistance where possible. Items checked out in the spring or earlier were automatically renewed to August 17. The book drops at the Chilliwack and Abbotsford libraries are open 24 x 7 for you to return your items. If you still need the library items, please renew them or contact the library if you need assistance. The library is currently offering Select and Collect, a curbside-like service offering access to limited parts of the collection:

Borrowing and Returning Items

Books, journals, DVDs, and other library items are available to borrow from the Abbotsford and Chilliwack campus libraries. Items will be delivered to the Mission campus and Hope Centre for pickup.

Be sure to review general information and policies on renewals, returning items, holds and transfers, overdue items, and paying fines. You must pay all outstanding library fines at the beginning of each semester in order to renew your library privileges.

Mission Campus

  • Search the library catalogue for items, and then place a hold with the preferred pickup location. You will have the option to have items held for you in Abbotsford or Chilliwack, or to have materials transferred by courier to the Mission campus office for pickup.
  • We will let you know by email to your UFV student email account when your items are ready to be picked up.
  • Your holds (requested items) can be returned at the Chilliwack and Abbotsford campus libraries OR to the Mission campus office. Please include the provided paperwork/wrapper with the item(s). (Items borrowed directly from Abbotsford or Chilliwack cannot be returned to the Mission office.)

Hope Centre

  • Search the library catalogue for items and then place a hold by using the forms on the webpage for distance students. Under pickup location, choose "Hope Centre." Items will be sent to the Hope Centre office for pick up based on the campus courier schedule.
  • We will let you know by email to your UFV student email account when your items are ready to be picked up.
  • Return your items to the Hope Centre office, or return them at the Chilliwack and Abbotsford campus libraries if it is convenient.

Library PIN

You will need your Library PIN to place a hold or renew items using your Library Account. If you do not know your Library PIN, get it here.
