VIVA Featured Member Library: Emory & Henry College

An interview with Jane Caldwell, Assistant Director, on December 15, 2017

Emory & Henry College

What are three points of pride in your library?

  • Our great, customer-service-oriented staff.  They always go the extra mile.

  • The size of our collection.  It is a big collection for a small library.

  • Our collaboration and shared catalog with three other libraries: Washington County (VA) Public Library, Tazewell County (VA) Public Library, and King University (Bristol TN) in the Holston Associated Libraries consortium.

What is the most popular spot in the library for users?

  • We have two areas that are popular spots for students: the Denham Poetry Collection and our Collaboration area.

Which VIVA resource or service do we value the most, and why?

  • We love the EBSCO suite of databases, especially Academic Search Complete.  Its multidisciplinary coverage and the amount of full-text make it our "go-to" database.

  • Also, the VIVA interlibrary loan community is a wonderful service to our students, faculty, and staff.
