Reynolds Libraries Promote A Healthy Mind and Body

Bike

Students at Reynolds Libraries are taking a holistic approach to their studies. Not only do they exercise their minds with the many resources the library has to offer, they exercise their bodies using the FitDesk stationary bike, found at both the Goochland and Parham Road locations.

Regular exercise not only enhances brain health, but working out before or after a study session awakens your mind and helps you retain information longer, potentially giving your test scores a welcome boost, according to the Scientific American.

So what are you waiting for? It’s science, ya’ll. 

Updated Library Website is live!

newsite

We are excited to officially launch our updated website! After receiving feedback from students, faculty, and staff, the library site was updated to create a better user experience.

The new site makes navigating easier by having a persistent menu bar with all library links available no matter where you are on the site:

We’ve also incorporated a prominent search box area that allows you to customize your catalog search based on what type of resource you are seeking – including Textbook Reserves. Additionally, you can now easily browse Popular/Best sellers, DVDs, and recently added books to the collection:

Library Workshops and Events are now prominently listed on the new library homepage as well as the most recent social media posts:

Some more exciting things to look forward to in the near future: more video guides/tutorials and an improved look for our Research Guides that will integrate more seamlessly with the rest of the website.

Please be aware that if you had previously bookmarked any links to specific library pages, you will need to update those to reflect the new URLs.  Otherwise, you may receive a “404” error page. If you have any trouble finding a particular resource, have questions, or would like to provide any additional feedback, don’t hesitate to reach us by phone, email, or in person.

Building Reynolds Textbook Bank – a Holiday Gift to Reynolds Students!

The ever increasing booktreecost of textbooks is making education more and more prohibitive to students.  Many of our students are using financial aid to pay for textbooks or attempt to complete a class without purchasing a textbook.

Textbooks are the #1 demanded books at Reynolds Libraries!

Reynolds Libraries are undertaking a Reynolds Textbook Bank project – that is to collect at least one copy of textbooks for each campus at which every course is taught and allow Reynolds students to check them out for a limited time.

As Dr. Pando has championed, we shall seek every opportunity to provide the resources to support our economically disadvantaged students.  We believe the Textbook Bank project, along with Reynolds OER initiative, will play a big role in making education more affordable to Reynolds students!

We count on faculty members to build the Reynolds Textbook Bank with us.  Before you head off for a joyful holiday season, please bring a copy of you textbooks to Reynolds Libraries for spring 2019.   This will be your holiday gift to Reynolds students!

To see if Reynolds Libraries already have a copy of your textbook(s) on reserve, simply click on the course name abbreviation below.  If not, bring your textbook(s) to Reynolds Libraries along with the completed Course Reserve Request Form.
