Library Exercise for SDV 108:  College Survival Skills 

The Library at Southwest Virginia Community College is a fully automated, academic resource center for students, faculty, and the community.  The many different types of resources include print books, e-books (electronic books), CDs, DVDs, videos, audiocassettes, recorded books, audio eBooks, periodical subscriptions, and over 7,000 full-text periodicals in electronic format.

These resources can be used in a traditional manner in the Library, located in the Dellinger Resource Center.  All of the electronic resources are available via the Internet from the Library, any computer lab on the SWCC campus, or from your home, office or public library.  Note that access to databases off campus requires a SWCC user name and password (the same as your Blackboard and email User name and password), provided through Remote Access.
