Tutorials & QuickStart Guides

How do I find a book, video, or CD?

Can I request a book be placed on hold?

Yes, this can be done electronically through the Online Library Catalog. These tools show you how:

Where's all your stuff?

Go to the Information Reference Page, a web page that you can use to access our databases, our catalog, and find other helpful sources.

How do I use a database?

The CVCC Library has an extensive electronic database collection. Here are helpful online tutorials:
The Library subscribes to more than 30 EBSCO databases. Searching techniques used in these databases are similar. See these useful tutorials:

Can I access these databases from home?

I didn't find what I wanted or needed in your catalog. Can you get it for me?

Yes we can! It is a service called interlibrary loan or ILL. If the CVCC Library does not own a particular book or journal article that you need, we will locate another library to loan or provide the item.

I'm an online/distance student and need something in your catalog. Can you send it to me?

Of course!! Students enrolled in online/distance education courses have borrowing privileges. Requested materials will be mailed, shipped, or faxed.

I'm a student at the Altavista/Amherst/Appomattox/Bedford Center. Can you send me something from your collection?

Sure we can do that!! Students enrolled in courses at Off Campus Center sites have borrowing privileges. Requested materials will be sent to the designated Off Campus Center.

Can you explain a bit about open educational resources (OER)?
