Looking for additional resources to support you during the Safer At Home ordinance? Please review our guide, which highlights tools and services available from LAVC and beyond, including:
Access to the Library's collection of print textbooks on reserve is unavailable, and the free online textbooks we had access to in Spring 2020 are no longer available. 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.
If you currently have a book checked out, not to worry. All due dates have been extended to February 2022. While the Library is still closed, book drops are available for book returns if you need to return your books early: There is a book drop near the Library entrance, and another just east of Fulton Ave near the Fulton circle.
For issues relating to Library holds on your account, please email us at email@example.com.
If you have questions about ebooks, or other research and reading options while the Library is closed, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For faculty interested in Library instruction, please email the librarians at email@example.com to request an online alternative. The Library will only offer virtual 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 online options for tutoring are being offered by the Academic Resource Center (ARC), including real-time access to LAVC tutors during business hours, real-time access to other qualified tutors anytime, and online workshops (also recorded for later viewing). Note: For 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.
