Library Service Center

Located off campus in Blacksburg, the Library Service Center is a high-density, climate controlled space where we keep many of our physical items safe and sound. Materials here are available on a deliver-by-request basis, but we understand that researchers often need to browse our collections in person. You may make an appointment to visit the Library Service Center by contacting Christopher Peters at 540-231-0220.

If an item you need is listed at the Library Service Center, hit the green request button in the catalog and choose your delivery location: Newman Library, Veterinary Medicine Library, Art + Architecture Library, or the Northern Virginia Center. In most cases your material(s) will be delivered by the following business day.
