Accessibility support
Special Services is an assistive technologies facility geared toward providing equal access to all students, faculty, and staff. Special Services helps the university support a wide array of accessible learning technologies and computer-related disability accommodations.
Lendable and in-house equipment
Newman Library lends iPads, laptops, digital cameras, voice recorders, and calculators, plus has A/V equipment for use in-house, such as DVD and VHS players and listen stations for CDs, cassettes, and vinyl records.
EndNote citation software
EndNote is a software product that allows researchers to save and organize results of database searches or lists of bibliographic references.
Group study rooms
Group study rooms with conference-style tables and chalkboards are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Four are located on the fourth floor. Each is equipped with a large screen monitor that users can connect to their laptop to practice presentations or to collaborate on a project with others.
LibX browser plugin
LibX is a browser extension that eases access to library resources through a search toolbar, right-click context menus, and embedded queues in sites like Amazon and Wikipedia.
Lockers
The Virginia Tech Libraries offers the use of lockers for Virginia Tech faculty and graduate students and Newman Library student employees. To request a locker, please visit the Circulation Desk on the second floor.
Off campus access to resources
When you are using the Virginia Tech network, subscribed resources like databases, ejournals, and ebooks automatically recognize you as part of the Virginia Tech community. When you use a different ISP while off campus, you'll need to go through an extra step to be recognized as part of our community and gain access to these resources.
Microform equipment
Microforms are non-circulating photographic reductions of print materials produced in the interest of saving space,obtaining or preserving rare or heavily used materials, or providing duplicate copies. Newman Library has a microforms collection numbering near 6 million items, including prints of books, magazines, newspapers, and engineering and technical reports. Equipment to view, scan, and print from these materials is available on the first floor of Newman Library.
Photocopiers
New multifunction equipment has now been installed that allow copying, printing, or scanning at stations located behind the main elevators on both the second and fourth floor. Simply swipe your Hokie Passport to start the copying process or to select your print jobs from your personal print queue.
Printers, scanners and typewriters
It's easy to print from our public computers or your laptop. In addition to our multifunction printers, we also have additional scanners, and a couple of typewriters for patrons' use.
Public computers
Computers are available in Newman Library and all of the branches for our patrons' use.
