Librarians By Appointment

If you're working on a research paper or have an in-depth research question, please consider making an appointment. A librarian will meet with you via Zoom or phone for a customized consultation. Learn more.

Visiting the Library

The Library building has reopened to LAVC students, faculty, and staff with limited services and hours. During the Fall semester, we are open Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Fridays 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. LAVC librarians are unavailable weekends and College holidays (though our chat service is still available).
