Collection Development

In developing the collection of this library VCSU Library staff encourages Faculty and Staff to make purchasing suggestions to support your work and teaching. If you'd like the Library to purchase a book, reference resource, newspaper, journal, DVD, etc. fill out this OneStop form with the title, author, publication information, and why you think we should purchase it.

Course Material Reserves

The Library's Course Reserves Service allows instructors to set aside books, films, or sound recordings for class use. This service allows faculty to select a designated borrowing period that is different from a typical collection borrowing period. This allows all students in this class to have equal access to the material. Course reserves can be library owned material or instructor owned. 

Borrowing periods can be:

  • 3 hours (in library use only),
  • Overnight,
  • 3 days,
  • 1 week,
  • 2 week. 

To submit a course reserve request visit this OneStop form
