Quick Start Library Guide: Downtown Campus

Use this handy guide to learn about and gain access to all the library resources from home or on-the-go!

Downtown Campus Faculty and Staff

Valencia College Libraries are offering online support for our faculty and staff.  While our Downtown Campus (DTC) situation is a little different, we are still able to provide support through all Valencia Libraries, college-wide.  While we partner with UCF Libraries, their library locations, including DTC, will be closed during this time.    We ask that you submit your questions via Ask-A-Librarian, a state-wide and campus specific virtual library service, only, and until further notice.

If you need  library assistance or additional library support other than what is available through this LibGuide, please contact me at:  

Angela C. Hall, DTC Librarian - ahall106@valenciacollege.edu.

You may also contact via Skype Business at 407-582-3504.

How Can I Help You?

The DTC Librarian is able to provide assistance via email and telephone regarding your online instruction:

  • Use the Ask-A-Librarian service, which provides you with virtual reference services text messaging, live chat, or emailing a librarian should you need immediate assistance.
  • Embed library content in your Canvas course by requesting a LibGuide or instructional video created specifically for your course.  Contact Angela Hall for assistance for DTC faculty.
  • Contact Angela Hall for assistance with accessing the library database and eBooks to incorporate into your course content.
  • To support students, embed a librarian in your Canvas Course
    • Add the Librarian to your Canvas course as a TA. While we don't grade assignments, this creates an opportunity for students to interact with us. Contact the DTC librarian for more information.

What do I about....?

  • Checkouts:  For our DTC students, books are circulated through the UCF system.  Any books that are already checked out from the DTC Library have a due date already been extended to September 1, 2020.  All other Valencia College Library items have an extended due date of January 25, 2021.
