Who: This is available to current UFV students, faculty, and staff and to UFV alumni.
How long: Regular loan periods will apply.
How: Use the UFV Library catalogue to search for items and use the Place Hold button to place a request. https://library.ufv.ca/books-dvds/. You will need to use your student number and library PIN number to place a hold.
You will receive an email when your items are ready.
If you do not see a Hold button, that means that the item type is not available via this service.
