The warehouse part of the building has a 37 foot ceiling and currently holds over 600,000 items. The items include books and journals, filmstrips, theses, dissertations, and phonorecords. There is enough space in the Storage facility to hold up to 750,000 volumes. The facility stores items belonging to Newman, the other on-campus branches, and Special Collections.
Document deliver personnel process requests and prepare items for delivery Monday through Friday. Requests require a 48 hour processing time to be delivered to on-campus locations. Occasionally requests may take up to 5 business days to process due to request volume or citation problems.
Library Courier Service is a resource that transports library materials to and from Newman Library, the Storage facility, the Art + Architecture Library, and the Veterinary Medicine Library. Patrons in Blacksburg can request items from the NVC Resource Center; patrons in northern Virginia should use ILLiad to request items be mailed to them.
The Library Courier delivers library materials Monday through Friday and all deliveries are completed by 5:00 pm each day. The delivery schedule varies during breaks and summer. For more information about this service, visit the Library Courier Service web page.
