Check-Out Guide • CVCC students can check out up to 10 books at a time • Your library card is your Student ID • If you do not return books on time, each book will incur a $0.20 fine per day it is overdue. • Unpaid library fines result in a hold on your record,preventing you from: registering, graduating, and accessing official transcripts. Fun fact! You can also check out books at CTC by signing up for a CVCC/CTC library card with us! Need Help Finding a Book? If we don’t have the book you need, you can request it from a different library through ILL. See a member of the library staff for more information!

  6. 6. Searching the Stacks Guide • All of our books are arranged by the Call Number, and we follow the Library of Congress Classification system (which is a bit different from the Dewey Decimal Classification system). • Call Numbers are basically the books’ addresses. • They are read top to bottom, and the books are arranged first alphabetically on the bookcases, and then numerically on the bookshelves. Call Number!
  7. 7. Searching the AVL Guide • AVL stands for Alabama Virtual Library, and it is where you will get access to databases full of scholarly articles. • On campus, you do not need a username or password, but at home you might. See the librarian for registration information! • From the screen, click on Student Resources, then College & University, then select a database from the list. • Use limiters to help narrow down your search and to make sure you are only getting results that fit within your assignment requirements.
