Brown Library Welcomes You!

Brown Library welcomes all students, faculty, and staff back to campus. We invite everyone to visit our building and take advantage of our resources and services.

Library Services are on the top level (2nd floor) of the library building. This floor is a “quiet floor” that is the perfect peaceful location for reading and quiet study. Five comfortable study rooms are available for currently-enrolled students to use. Traditional print resources (books, magazines, newspapers, and journals) are also available on this floor, along with access to library databases and other electronic resources and guides. Our Circulation and Reference staff members look forward to serving you.

The Academic Link occupies the main level (1st floor) of the library building. This floor, known as the Link Learning Commons, is home to Virginia Western's tutoring/academic success programs such as one-on-one and group tutoring programs, academic success coaching, and the walk-in Math Center. Computers and five more study rooms are available for collaborative, active learning. The Link Learning Commons is a comfortable and invigorating place to study, learn, and work.

The ground floor (GF) of the library building hosts the Testing Center, the walk-in Writing Center, the walk-in Science Center, and the Link Computer Lab in room B17. The Testing Center administers the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) for English and math, as well as make-up tests and proctored exams for all asynchronous distance learning courses. The Science Center provides assistance with biology, chemistry, and anatomy courses, while the Writing Center provides assistance with papers for any class. The Link Computer Lab in B17 is a quiet area where computers are available for student use.

Come see us soon!

Student and Staff Parking

As the semester gets underway we want to remind everybody that parking for students and staff is limited to designated areas. Please read all parking lot signs as you enter a lot to be sure you are parking properly. Simpler yet, white lined spaces are designated for student parking and yellow lined spaces are designated as faculty staff parking. Please read the College’s Parking Regulations for further information.
