Alumni Access

Alumni can download the BCIT Alumni Perks app and are entitled to free alumni library privileges for the first year and have the option to purchase alumni library privileges at the reduced rate of $15.00 per year subsequently.

Alumni may borrow up to 5 items from the collection for a two-week loan.

Selected video and DVD recordings from the circulating collection are available for a one-week loan.

Alumni may use the Library’s reference collections, including directories, maps, standards, government publications and case law.

Due to licensing agreements electronic databases are only available remotely to current staff and students. Alumni are welcome to access electronic databases on site at the Aerospace and Marine Campus Libraries and through the Research Network on the main floor of the Burnaby Campus Library.
