Where Are All the Books?

Due to the renovation of the Circulation floor (top floor) of the library, the majority of the library’s print books have been put into storage.  But don’t worry— the entire circulating collection of books will be back in place on the top floor when the renovation is complete later this year!

In the meantime, there are several options for books to support your research:

  • Use the “Core Collection”

A small collection of books (approximately 1000 volumes) is available for checkout.  These books can be checked out for a two-week period.  Go to the Circulation Department on the library’s main floor to access this collection.

  • Use our eBooks

The library’s extensive eBook collection (over 40,000 e-Books) is still available during the renovation.  Students can access eBooks from off-campus locations by using their MyVWCC username and password.

  • Use Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is an option for students who require print books for academic work. It usually takes 5-10 business days for books to arrive. Please keep this time frame in mind when making an ILL request.

Brown Library staff members are glad to help you with all of your information needs. Ask a Librarian!

Volunteer/Internship Opportunity!

The Feeding America Hunger Study will start next month- VOLUNTEER AND INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES are available! Volunteers are needed to help with the client survey by working in teams to visit assigned food distribution sites throughout Southwest Virginia to randomly select clients for a computer-based interview. Teams of 3 to 4 will be paired with a food pantry, shelter, or soup kitchen to conduct client interviews. This great opportunity allows volunteers to learn more about hunger in their community.
