Academic libraries in the United States may operate differently than ones you have used before. The Virginia Tech Libraries have professional librarians with expertise in your academic discipline ready to assist you with your assignments and research.
Like many American college libraries, the Virginia Tech Libraries have open stacks where the material is arranged in call number order so you can browse and retrieve materials yourself.
Your instructors will expect you to make use of scholarly materials for your research and academic assignments (not just web sites found through Google). You'll need to understand how academic integrity requires documenting your sources.
We have lots of non-English language books and movies, plus resources for learning English and other languages.
If you need assistance translating materials, bilingual dictionaries are a great resource. We have foreign language dictionaries online and in print.
