Thanksgiving Break Schedule

Please note that library services will have reduced hours next week due to Thanksgiving break. Our hours next week are as follows:
Monday, November 20 8am-8pm
Tuesday, November 21 8am-5pm
Wednesday, November 22 8am-12noon
Closed Thursday, November 23 through Sunday, November 26.
Our regular hours will resume Monday, November 27.

We are unable to fill Interlibrary Loan requests between November 18 and November 26. Plan ahead and get those requests in now.

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. 

Labor Day Schedule

Library Services, on the top floor of Brown Library, will be closed on Saturday, September 2 and Monday, September 4 in observance of Labor Day. Normal hours will resume Tuesday, September 5. You can access our online resources, including chat-with-a-librarian, 24/7 on our website. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!

New semester, new look

Welcome back to campus! We’ve been busy this summer updating our website and policies.

  1. You’ll notice some changes on our website. We recently migrated to a new version of InfoGuides. Click on the InfoGuides link in the left sidebar of our homepage to check out the fresh new look.
  2. Our Database list has also been updated. You can search for your favorite database, sort by alphabetical order, or browse databases by subject area. Check out the changes under the Find Articles link in the left sidebar of our homepage.
  3. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve changed our food policy. We will now allow snacks and drinks in the library. Please be courteous, clean up after yourselves, and let us know if you need help dealing with a spill.
  4. A photo ID is required to borrow library materials. You can obtain a Student ID in the Student Life Center, which gets you access to other stuff on campus, too. Or we can use another form of valid ID.

Remember, some things never change. Our floor is still a silent study space, perfect for concentrating on homework or doing research. Your friendly library staff members are still here to answer your questions and help you find sources. Email us at library@virginiawestern.edu or stop by and say hi in person! We are here 8am-8pm Monday through Thursday, 8am-5pm Friday, and 9am-1pm Saturday throughout the semester.
