TVCC Libraries: General Library Information

General Information

Food and Drink Policy

Beverages in covered containers are permitted in the library with the exception of the computer and collaboration room.  Snack items may be consumed but all trash items must be discarded prior to exiting the facility.

Group Work

Students may engage in group work in the general library area and in designated study rooms.  Students working together in the main library are asked to keep their conversations to a minimum in order to avoid disturbing other students.  Study rooms and a collaboration room are available for students to check out.


The library as a rule does not carry textbooks for student use unless an instructor places the book on reserve.  Reserve items do not leave the library.

Cell Phone Policy

Students are asked to place their phones on vibrate.  Students needing to answer or place a call may do so in the outside foyer of the library.

Personal Possessions

Do not leave personal belongings unattended.  The library is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items.  

Smoking/Tobacco Use

All TVCC campuses are smoke free. 

Minor Children

Per TVCC policy, "minor children are not permitted to remain unattended on campus or to attend classes with parents."

Homework/Research Assignments 

We encourage students to come to the library to complete any homework and most certainly their research assignments.  The library can't, however, do your homework or assignments for you.  Library staff will be more than happy to help with locating the appropriate materials for research, directing you to resources on our online databases, or will answer any questions about citation styles or how to avoid plagiarism.  Students that need specialized assistance with homework can visit the Cardinal Success Center (Technology Building Room 320).

Copy Machine 

Students may make black and white copies using the library's copy machine.  Copies are .05/page. 

Fax Machine 

Students may send faxes from the library after 4:30 p.m.  The TVCC Bookstore handles all faxes before 4:30 p.m.
