VIVA: Roanoke College
Member Library Interviews (2017-2019)
Our users take advantage of every nook and cranny, but if we have to pick, Rooney’s Brews and our Collaboration Space win. Rooney’s Brews is our library café and features locally roasted coffees and yummy treats. Students and faculty gather for classes, just to have a bite, or play a game of chess. Our Collaboration Space is a popular location for campus events, ad hoc classes, and student study groups. It is a place where writing on the wall is OK! And for users who prefer a bit less activity around them, our second floor quiet space is where they go to get away from it all.
EBSCOHost databases are popular because they support cross-disciplinary access to scholarly content. In addition, VIVA’s cooperative borrowing program is a great benefit to our users because it gives them direct, onsite access to VIVA institutions’ collections.
