Looking for additional resources to support you during the pandemic? Please review our guide, which highlights tools and services available from LAVC and beyond, including:
Our building hours for the Fall semester are Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Fridays 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. LAVC librarians also may be available via chat or email. LAVC librarians are unavailable weekends and College holidays (though our chat service is still available).
The Library's collection of print textbooks on reserve will be available beginning Sept. 7th. Reserve textbooks are available for 4-day checkouts. To see if we have the textbook for your class, search our collection in OneSearch or Ask A Librarian for assistance.
To purchase or rent textbooks or online textbooks, please visit the LAVC Bookstore website, or ask your instructor if there are free or low-cost options to access the textbook(s) or resources you need. For more information, see our guide to Online Textbooks.
You may return your book at any time via the Library's book drops. There is a book drop near the Library entrance, and another just east of Fulton Ave near the Fulton circle. If you're not sure when your book is due, log into your Library account to find out.
For issues relating to Library holds on your account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For faculty interested in Library instruction, we recommend starting with our online workshop series, the Library Research Toolkit. If our Toolkit doesn't meet your needs, please email the librarians at email@example.com so we can discuss other options. Please keep in mind that the Library is only offering virtual instruction services during this time.
The Library also offers a platform for research and information literacy instruction. With Credo Instruct, students can work through a series of videos and tutorials to help them become better researchers (note that a library login is required).
In-depth resources for faculty:
Several options for tutoring are being offered by the Academic Resource Center (ARC), including in-person and online tutoring. Note: For online access, you'll need to log into Canvas (details at the ARC link above).
For help with non-Library issues regarding the use of computers, software programs, and portals, please visit the LAVC Computer Commons remote help desk.
