Open Education Week at KPU

Open Education Week (March 4-8) is celebrated internationally, and KPU is no exception! On March 6, Open In Action takes place at Richmond Campus (RSVP here); on March 7, KPU Open is hosting an Open Education Week event at Surrey Campus that will feature a panel session and launch of the Library's new service, Open Publishing Suite (OPuS); and throughout the week, our Librarians will be hosting mini-sessions at multiple times and campuses! All events discuss and educate participants on topics in Open Education and are a great place to gain insight, learn skills and meet colleagues interested in this exciting field. Visit the links above to learn more about each event, and don't forget to RSVP!


Spring Research Parties

Once again we are offering KPU students a chance to get a jump start on their final assignments in a supportive environment! We'll have a Librarian and Learning Centre Tutor in our computer labs during select times so students can have one-on-one help at the raise of a hand. Ask many questions or ask none! And this semester we've added a session at Langley by popular demand. Want to learn more and reserve a spot? Visit Research Party to RSVP! 


New Automatic Renewals for Students

Starting on January 14, we've updated our system so students will receive automatic renewals for eligible periodicals and general collection materials. How does it work and what gets renewed? General collection material and periodicals will be automatically renewed up to 4 times on your account, provided no one else has placed a request on the item and your library account is in good standing. You will receive an email at least 4 days prior to the original due date notifying you of the renewal and the new due date.  It is still good practice to keep a close eye on My Library Account, but this way we hope to help students avoid some fines due to forgetting to renew! Please note Course Reserves, DVDs and videos are not eligible for automatic renewal. Details on our renewal policy can be found at Loans, Renewals & Returns for Students.
