The UFV Heritage Collection is a working collection of rare, unique and historically valuable material, consisting primarily of books and other material related to the people and communities of the Fraser Valley. This primarily published collection is intended to preserve and make available components of the historical record for researchers and the public. Founded by librarian Anne Knowlan in 1988, the collection was given a home with a $2,000 donation to Fraser Valley College from the Chilliwack Rotary Club. In the spring of 2011, the Heritage Collection was moved from the Chilliwack Campus library to the Abbotsford Campus library.
