Workshops

VSCS Libraries Orientation Workshop

The VSCS Libraries are up, running, and ready to help you with your research, reading, and watching needs! Join us for a virtual orientation to using the new library website (libraries.vsc.edu), how and where you can visit an in-person library, and how to get help. Whether you're new to CCV or VTSU, or coming back for another year of teaching and learning, we'll help you get started with finding what you need. See you there!


Find it Free!

Have you ever found an article you wanted to read, but it was hidden behind a paywall? The VSCS Libraries can help you find it, for free! This workshop will show you how to find and access articles in our library databases from publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other sources. We'll also show you how to submit a request for any articles we don't offer. Put away that wallet, and join us to find articles, free!
