The Library is located in Bedford Hall. Library staff provide library instruction/information literacy sessions of varying lengths for many courses in all of the CVCC academic divisions. Instruction can be provided in the Library’s Instruction Room or in the classroom. The Library’s Instruction Room, equipped with projector and computer workstations, allows students the opportunity to access the Library’s online resources as well as its other resources. Sessions may be provided to the off-campus centers as well.
The faculty may request instruction for entire classes, and individual students may come to the Library for instruction on an as[-]needed basis. To request an instruction session, complete the online Library Instruction Request Form. For more information, see Guidelines for Library Instruction, ask a librarian, or call (434) 832-7750.
The Library also provides open workshops on various topics throughout the semester. Among the topics covered are: a) Locating Library Books & Materials, b) Using Electronic Databases, c) Using a USB Drive, Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Word. The times and locations will be posted around campus and on the Library web page.
Individual instruction is always available. To arrange for individual instruction, ask any librarian
