Happy Summer!

Improved QV Site License - Chronicle of Higher Education

The Library has negotiated an improved site license to The Chronicle of Higher Education, providing QV faculty, staff, and students with unlimited access to Chronicle content, news, and data. To log in from anywhere, visit Chronicle.Com and choose the "sign in" option; then, first-time users of this new site license should choose "sign up" to create your own FREE account using your QVCC email address. Once you've established your account, log into future sessions using just the "sign in" option. You may also opt into free newsletters delivered to your inbox.

Filling the Textbook Gap

The library can fill the gap between Day 1 of classes and the day (sometimes several weeks later) when all students have finally purchased, rented, or received delivery of their textbooks.

Please consider sharing with the library your course reading assignments for the early weeks of the summer terms or fall semester? Library staff need time to purchase any texts the library does not yet own and to digitize and set access restrictions for digital course reserves before the summer term and fall semester begin.
