The library is pleased to announce its participation in the VIVA (Virtual Library of Virginia) Cooperative Borrowing Program.
When visiting at one of the participating libraries at private and public colleges and universities in Virginia, you may check out books from that library by presenting your current LC ID card, and agreeing to follow the borrowing policies of that library.
After reading the book, you may drop it off at the Knight-Capron Library and we will return it for you. Complete information is available at http://www.vivalib.org/borrowing/index.php.
If you have any questions, contact Belinda Carroll:
The library staff would like to know what interest there might be in workshops dedicated to learning about specific library sources, such as RefWorks, Interlibrary Loan, LC OneSearch, or any other library resources or service. These would be short 20 - 30 minute sessions.
If you would be interested, please send us an email using the link below and indicate what topic you would be interested in and what time of day would be best for you.
Faculty may request that the library deliver books, audio-visual materials, or copies of articles from journals in the library's collections directly to their office.
This service is available Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters while classes are in session.
There are two scheduled deliveries per day.
It is our goal that requests received by 10 a.m. will be delivered by 11 a.m. the same day.
The goal for requests received by 2 p.m. is to deliver the items by 3 p.m.
Requested books and audio-visual materials will be checked out to the faculty member.
Are you teaching a writing intensive course? One with assignments requiring students to find scholarly journal articles? Want to assist your students in using appropriate information sources?
We have a new capbility of customizing a search interface that searches select databases, or subjects from the master index in LC OneSearch. We are looking for some faculty volunteers who would be willing to experiment with this to see if we can jointly develop a way to more easily engage students with authoritative and credible information.
If you are interested, please contact Mike Ours
