Ask A Librarian

New Student Orientation

Library resources for students new to West Virginia University

Encourage Your Student to Ask a Librarian!

We're not just biased, we are essential to academic success. Librarians are masters at creating search strategies and manipulating databases. Our dedicated Subject Librarians are here to support your student personally, and provide assistance with their research assignments. Encourage them to Ask-a-Librarian. We want to help them succeed!


Here are some of the best ways to get help.

What About Printing & Copying?

Your student can print and make photocopies at the library using their Mountie Bounty, a convenient debit plan that allows you to place dollar amounts on your Mountaineer Card for later use. To find more information about Mountie Bounty and how upload funds to your or your student's card, head over to the Mountie Bounty FAQ page at ITS. 

We Rent Laptops

Does your student need specialty equipment, such as a camera, voice recorder, or video camera? We have equipment available to rent for academic purposes! What about specialty software? In the Downtown Campus Library we have computers with software available in the Lower Level. 


Check out our equipment page to see what we can loan to your student.
