JournalFinder Search

If you have a citation, and you want to know if we have access to the article in our databases or print holdings, enter the journal title in the journal finder search box above. Select the database provider that has coverage of the date you need or fill out a print journal article request slip to have it retrieved for you. 

Quick Links to Interlibrary Loan

If what you need is not here at CNU, register to use ILL@CNU, the Interlibrary Loan service.

Remember to check your CNU email for ILL arrivals.

Curious about local libraries?

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,

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.

Reference Books and Sets

These reference works are excellent for background and explanatory details.

Some are in the library and others are electronic. Click on Map it to see a map of where the book is located in the library.
