Brown Library Welcomes You!

Brown Library welcomes all students, faculty, and staff back to campus. We invite everyone to visit our building and take advantage of the resources and services.

Library Services are on the top level (2nd floor) of the library building. This floor is a “quiet floor” that is the perfect peaceful location for reading and quiet study. Five comfortable study rooms are available for currently-enrolled students to use. Traditional print resources (books, magazines, newspapers, and journals) are also available on this floor, along with access to library databases and other electronic resources and guides. Our Circulation and Reference staff members look forward to serving you.

The Academic Link occupies the main level (1st floor) of the library building. This floor, known as the Link Learning Commons, is home to VWCC’s tutoring/academic success programs such as one-on-one and group tutoring programs and the walk-in Math Center. Computers and study rooms are available for collaborative active learning. The Link Learning Commons is a comfortable and invigorating place to study, learn, and work.

The Ground Floor (GF) of the library building hosts the Testing Center, the walk-in Writing Center, and the Link Lab in room B17. The Testing Center administers the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) for English & math, as well as make-up tests, and proctored exams for all asynchronous distance learning courses. The Writing Center provides assistance with papers for any class. The Link Lab-B17 computers are available for student use.

Come see us soon!

Achievement Day – Employee Recognition Event – Get Your Free Sundae!

Employee Achievement Day

Natural Science Center

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

 

Remember when we were growing up our parents always taught us that you shouldn’t brag about yourself because it wasn’t socially acceptable? During Employee Achievement Day we are going to break the rules and get caught red handed bragging not only about ourselves but our peers as well! Take the time to brag about your peer and don’t forget let’s not be modest and share with us your achievements on the “Caught Red Handed Bragging Board”! Virginia Western has a lot to brag about their employees so let’s fill up this board! The completed recognition board will be displayed at the schools and divisions throughout the college on a rotating monthly schedule over the next year. Be sure to check it out!

Achievement Day is also a time to recognize that you tirelessly serve college customers each and every day; therefore, on this day our presidential staff and deans want to serve you… ice cream! Our ice cream scoopers will provide you with the base of a sundae for you to make on your own with a variety of condiments that will be available to build your perfect sundae!

Out of our ice cream scoopers, who will be the super scooper? Will it be Dr. Sandel, Dr. Wilmer, Cheryl Miller, Debbie Yancey, Amy Anguiano, Lori Baker, John Anderson or Carole Graham? Make sure to recognize these “scoopers” by completing a red hand in their honor! We have a lot to brag about these extraordinary employees!
