Use other library catalogs to locate resources - be sure you have a VTC card before you visit!
As a CNU student, you can borrow materials from other area college and university libraries that belong to the Virginia Tidewater Consortium (VTC) for Higher Education.
BEFORE you go to another library,
get the VTC card
from the Circulation Desk in the Trible Library.
You must present the VTC card and your CNU ID at the library in order to borrow materials. The VTC cards are free and good for one semester.
These are excellent for background and explanatory details.
Some are in the library and others are electronic.
