TWU and Kwantlen become reciprocating libraries

TWU's University Librarian Ted Goshulak and Cathy MacDonald, Dean of Learner Resources at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (formerly Kwantlen College) have agreed to a reciprocal borrowing agreement effective immediately. The arrangement allows employees and students at both institutions to borrow material from each others' libraries. All that is required is a valid university ID card.

Kwantlen’s four campus libraries at Langley, Cloverdale, Surrey and Richmond provide a wide array of print and electronic resources, designed to assist students with course studies and to encourage self-directed research and learning. Visit the Kwantlen Library website for more information

The agreement comes in advance of province-wide agreement being worked out among BC post-secondary institutions which will allow TWU students to borrow at most publicly funded colleges and universities in the province. Currently, Alloway Library has reciprocal arrangements that permit TWU students and employees to borrow from over 80 institutions including SFU, UBC and ten other BC universities and colleges.
