Points to the Past Initiative

All B.C. residents now have access to the Gale primary research databases made available by an agreement arranged by UVIC, UBC and SFU Libraries.  This exciting initiative opens up access to all Gale Digital Collections including Indigenous Peoples: North America, Nineteenth Collections Online as well as many other digital collections.  For complete details about these resources, click here.  Access to these databases will be set up shortly from our Research Databases webpage.

Library Catalogue Unavailable December 16 to 18

Library Catalogue Unavailable December 16 to 18

UFV Library is upgrading our systems December 16 to 18. During that period, the library catalogue will only be available through Ebsco Discovery Service (EDS) “articles and more” tab, which is accessed from the prominent search box at the top of the library homepage.

Library staff will be able to check out materials manually and receive returned materials, but will not be able to process these transactions electronically until after the upgrade is complete. Library staff will also not be able to check library account status, accept payment for fines or process any requests that include accessing library users’ accounts.


We apologize for the inconvenience and will do our best to get the system running again as quickly as possible. If you have questions or concerns, please email or phone Brenda Philip at brenda.philip@ufv.ca, local 4191, Leslie Olsen at leslie.olsen@ufv.ca, local 2468, or Moira Guzyk at moira.guzyk@ufv.ca, local 4202.

Library Catalogue on Tuesday, Nov. 25th.

Our library catalogue will be unavailable Tuesday, November 25th due to server maintenance.  We hope to restore the catalogue on Wednesday, November 26th.  We will keep everyone informed via this blog.

In the meanwhile, please use the UFV library's discovery service (EDS) :http://www.ufv.ca/library/ where you can limit your search for books/videos to "Catalogue Only".

We apologize for this inconvenience.  This maintenance work is taking longer than we anticipated.
