Changes in Brown Library – Please Read!

Changes in Brown Library Building

“Ch–Ch–Ch–Ch-Changes” is the chorus from the popular 1971 song, “Changes” by David Bowie.  “Ch–Ch–Ch–Ch–Changes” also describes what’s going on in the Brown Library building.

Library Services Have Moved!

All library services for Virginia Western students have moved to a spacious new dwelling on the top level (2nd floor) of the library building.  This floor has been designated as a “quiet floor” and 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, other electronic resources and guidelines for creating source citations.  The Library’s circulation and reference desks are also now located on the top floor.

The Academic Link Has also Moved! 

What? You didn’t know we had an Academic Link? We do. Since the beginning of the fall semester, The Academic Link has been the name of VWCC’s tutoring/academic success programs. The one-on-one/group tutoring programs, academic skills coaching and the Math Center have moved up from the ground floor of the library building to the main level (1st floor), now to be known as the Link Learning Commons.

With this move many things will stay the same. The computers are still open to all, the study rooms and classroom can still be reserved, the Academic Link staff (like the library staff) will still help anyone with questions, and the good old WEPA machines will still print for anyone with an account or a card. The biggest change, in fact, may be that the Link Learning Commons will be a place for collaborative active learning.  With tutors working with students, small study groups meeting and our very active Math Center, the main floor of Brown Library may not be the same quiet study space many have come to know.  However we hope that students, faculty and staff will find the Link Learning Commons to be a comfortable and invigorating place to study, learn and work.

 

Whether you need a quiet place to study, help with a research project, the answer to a basic technology question, a place to meet with a study group, or a tutor to help you ace that class, the Academic Link staff and the library’s Reference and Circulation staff are here to help you out. Come see us soon!

No Shave November

Hello,
Just in case you are wondering why the Campus Police officers are looking a bit scruffy and unshaven during November there is a good reason. Because nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way, the Campus Police Department has decided to show our support and make a difference by forming a team to support the American Cancer Society. We are the Virginia Western Campus Police Team ACS. Using the links on this page, you can join our fight against cancer by clicking to Join our Team or Donate. Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing cancer. We hope you will join us.  Click here to view the TEAM page for Virginia Western Campus Police
