Library Fest


In years past, Library Fest has been an in-person function at James Branch Cabell Library, featuring tables highlighting important resources, from Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences to the Innovative Media Workshop, as well as key campus partners.

This year, Library Fest takes a virtual form and will consist of a series of brief, informal videos for incoming and current students, introducing many library departments and services. The videos will be rolled out over the course of the Weeks of Welcome on social media and will be collected here.

The event is free and open to all. For questions or accommodations, please contact Donna Coghill, community engagement librarian and coordinator of campus partnerships, at or (804) 828-6544.
