Starting September 2019, the Library will no longer be recalling items. Changes have also been made to our overdue fines, loan periods and renewals in order to support a healthier circulation of our library materials. Visit the Loans, Renewals & Returns for Students and the Overdues & Fines pages to learn more about the changes.
Check our new Wellness Collection
The Library has a new collection that focuses on your health and wellness! Made up of well-reviewed, recently published material, we've designed the collection to gather material pertinent to the KPU Healthy University Initiative's Six Dimensions of Wellness. The collection is located in the Library Atrium at Surrey Campus Library, behind the Research Help Desk, and all books can be placed on hold and sent to the campus library of your choice. Visit our Wellness Collection Libguide for more details.
