Fall 2017 ILL Cut-off

As we approach the end of the Fall 2017 semester, we will need to discontinue Interlibrary Loan service. The following cut-off dates should ensure you have time to place a request and receive the material for final assignments and exams. Please be sure to submit your requests by these dates.

  • The last day to request BOOKS through ILL is Thursday, November 30, 2017.
  • The last day to request ARTICLES through ILL is Tuesday, December 5, 2017.

We have numerous books and databases to meet your research needs. If you need help identifying materials in our collection, contact a reference librarian: 540-857-7303 or library@virginiawestern.edu. Best of luck as you finish up your semester!

Remember, while we are closed, you can still access our online resources from anywhere with an internet connection. Visit our home page to access databases, as well as a chat service that will connect you with a librarian for assistance, 24/7. Yep, even on Thanksgiving Day! But we hope you will be enjoying a break and not thinking too much about school work.
