Let us know how we're doing. This is your library, how can we serve you better? We'd like your input to help make the library a better resource by shaping the collections, resources, services, and any other areas of the library to better fit your needs. Here are ways you can let us know what you think:
Use this to send your suggestions and comments about our services, collections, etc so we can find more and better ways to support your research and information needs. See our archive of previously posted comments.
We subscribe to many databases, but are always looking for new resources that will better serve your research needs. Take a look at the latest trial databases and let us know if you think this would be a good resource to have permanently by filling out an online survey.
Please take a moment to fill out an evaluation of the session(s) you attended.
Is there a database, library service, or other information resource you want to know more about? Suggest a topic for our Library workshop courses. These are free sessions to help you learn more about library and information resources available to you.
Is there a book, DVD, video or any other resource you found that you'd like the library to own? Use our online request a purchase form. We'll do our best to add the item to our collection.
There are no surveys taking place at this time. Please check again later.
Hi--I went to the circulation desk at the Newman Library, and needed to pick up some books that were being held for me. The person working the front desk was brusque to the point of rudeness, interrupting and basically shoving the books at me. I could tell as I was waiting that this person was frazzled; however, I don't think this person should've been treating patrons that way. Thanks.
I'm sorry about your library experience. I'll look into this matter today. Please accept my apology for the staff member's negative attitude. If I can help with anything else please let me know.
I was unable to find the book "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp in your collections. This surprised me because it is an extremely popular book that has been on the New York Times bestseller list for some time. I think it would be a great book to add to your collections.
Thank you for the suggestion of this book. I've forwarded your message to Purdom Lindblad, who is our subject librarian with the area of expertise that most closely matches the content of this work. You can also use the "suggest a purchase" form when you find materials you think should be a part of Tech's library collection.
I would like to access the data base portal. I am an alumni, but I don't know what a PID is - how do I determine that? And how do I set up a password as there is no place at the portal to 'register'? Thanks.
Your PID is your "Personal Identification" which all current students at Tech have assigned to them when they enroll (depending on when you graduated, your PID may have expired or you may not have had one assigned when you were here). Information on how to create a PID is available at http://www.lib.vt.edu/alumniportal/sign-in/alumni-pid.html as well as contact information if you need additional assistance.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.
