INFORMATION RESOURCES

Whether you have embraced the age of online research, or still prefer to physically thumb through good ol’ reference books page by page, Varsity College campus libraries ensure you have easy access to the up-to-date, relevant information you need.

1 Library access

Access control at the VC Libraries requires a valid student card. Students who do not have their student card will not be allowed inside until they have provided a valid identification document.

2 Photocopying and printing

A photocopier is available for both photocopying and printing. Students need to purchase printing and photocopying credits at the cashier and then present their receipt to the IT administrator who will then load credits onto the student’s student card. Please refer to the printing and photocopier procedures in the library for more information.

3 Library orientation and information services

Library orientation and training on how to use the online databases is provided by campus librarians. To arrange a session, please contact your campus librarian directly.

4 An online information service

Each library has a wireless network point for access to Internet resources and/or those resources available on the library website (such as e-databases, e-journals and e-books).

6 Wireless Internet access

Wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) is available on every VC campus and there are network points in each library for laptops registered for use on that campus. Speak to your librarian for access instructions.
