CoVid19 & VIA Library


All students and teachers can place orders for those books and items available in the physical locations of VIA Libraries. These orders will be handled by VIA library staff who will place ordered items in a bag which you can then pick up on your campus – see more under FAQ. This means you still will not have access to campus and you must remember to keep a distance in case of lines upon your arrival.

Out of consideration to your fellow students, we kindly ask that you only place holds on the materials you need. The loaning period is 14 days.

Knowing this has been a big request from many of you, we hope this will ease your essay writing and exam preparations.
