Services for Distance Students
Any student enrolled in a compressed video, synchronous or asynchronous
learning course at CVCC's campus will have library use and borrowing
privileges identical to every CVCC student in good standing. These library
services include, but are not limited to free interlibrary loan service,
book checkout, use of in-house periodicals, and access to computerized
indexes and electronic resources. Librarians and other staff members will
assist these distance students in the same exhaustive manner as they assist
all students, faculty and staff. Library instruction sessions will be
available and encouraged for distance learning students on-campus.
CVCC’s distance students will be able to request library materials owned by
CVCC using the Distance Student Material Request form.
They may also use this form to request library materials which are not owned
by CVCC. Requested materials will be mailed, shipped or faxed to the distance
student as appropriate. There will be no photocopying charges.
Distance learning programs delivered off-campus will be supported through
online access to the library's catalog and toll-free telephone access to
librarians. There is also a VCCS on-line reference service.
Course reserve materials, interlibrary loans, books and periodical articles
will be delivered via U.S. mail, fax, or the Internet as appropriate.
Detailed library instruction sessions will be presented to off-campus
students at the class site.
