Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services
The VCU Libraries interlibrary loan and document delivery services will not operate during the VCU Winter Closing from December 22, 2012 through January 2, 2013.
The time required to obtain materials from other institutions increases during December and January due to winter breaks, holiday delays and increased end-of-semester workloads. With this in mind, some of your requested materials may not be obtained until January 2013.
Special Collections and Archives
Special Collections and Archives will be closed during VCU Winter Closing from December 22 - January 2. Special arrangements for access may be requested on a limited basis by contacting Special Collections at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-1108.
VCU security officers will be on site in Cabell Library. See security or library staff if you need assistance or would like to contact the VCU Security Escort Service (828-WALK or 828-9255).
Starbucks at Cabell Library will be open to serve you beverages and food this Intersession. Hours will be made public soon.
Beverage and snack vending machines are available in the Basement Level. Most machines accept both cash and RamBucks, though the Amp energy drink vending machine does not accept RamBucks.
Reference and Instructional Services staff assist faculty, staff, and students with a variety of research needs and provides classroom instruction to teach library research skills. For additional information, call the reference desk at 828-1101.
