The semester is approaching, and fast. Whether you took classes this summer or you’re coming back from a break, we hope you’re as excited as we are that Fall 2010 is about to begin.

While you may not be on campus to witness move-in day and the many different orientations that take place, we want you to know you’re a part of this campus. You have the same concerns about ordering textbooks, making sure you’ve enrolled in the right classes, finding time to study, and graduating. You should have the same access to the great resources Odum Library provides its on-campus users. Here’s the good news: you do!

How does it work?

First of all, you can access journal articles (even those “peer reviewed” articles your professors keep asking for!) through Anywhere Access. Just log in with your BlazeVIEW username and password and you’ll have full access to the GALILEO databases.

Need books? You can check them out from any library in the University System of Georgia. Need one we have at VSU, but not at the USG library close to you? You can have it sent to that library for you to pick up. Read all about it at http://gilexpress.usg.edu/. If you need a book that the USG libraries don’t have you can submit an ILLiad request to have it mailed directly to you.

Maybe you need help from a librarian. You know you need information, but you don’t know where to find it. Just ask! We’re here to help, so contact us by chat, phone, or email at http://www.valdosta.edu/library/ask.php For questions about distance access to library services contact Ginger Williams, the Reference/Outreach Services Librarian via e-mail or call  229-245-3745.

For more detailed information about all the opportunities distance users have to connect with Odum Library, check out the library’s webpage on Services for Distance Education.

Have a great semester!
