Library Policies, Procedures and Guidelines: Community Users

Community User Policy

Community User Policy

Community library cards can be issued to all Virginia residents, including alumni. Please see the Community Users brochure for more information.

When individuals come to Greenwood Library or use Longwood’s LancerNet Visitor Wifi, they have access to all our databases/e-resources

For access from home, Virginia residents can register for an online account with the Library of Virginia: https://www.lva.virginia.gov/about/policies/register_va.htm.  This allows users to access not only the Library’s catalog, but many digital resources, including things like JSTOR, NexisUni, and ProQuest Historical Newspapers.  If alumni move out of Virginia, most state libraries have similar offerings for all state residents.

Some database access is available through the Central Virginia Regional Library in Farmville, and the same goes for most public libraries.  Residents of Prince Edward County and surrounding counties can get a library card there.

Local School Teacher/Student Services Policy

Greenwood Library at Longwood University serves as a resource for materials not usually available in local school libraries.

Greenwood Library welcomes tours and class visits from local schools. A teacher or library media specialist must accompany and remain with the group. Tours and class visits are available by appointment and will consist of a general introduction to Library facilities and services. Due to Longwood student usage, tours and class visits are not available during the first and last four weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters. Please see Longwood’s academic calendar for current dates.

Scheduling a Tour or Class Visit

To make an appointment for a tour or class visit, please contact Cindy Elliott, by e-mail at elliottcb@longwood.edu or by phone at (434) 395-2440. In your e-mail or voice mail message, include your name, telephone number, and when your group would like to visit the Library. You will be notified by e-mail within three business days whether your tour or class visit has been scheduled. If there are any questions, please call (434) 395-2440.

Tours or class visits should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.

Services During a Tour or Class Visit

During the tour or class visit, computers may be used in accordance with the Library’s Community Use Policy for Library Workstations.

Library materials may be used while in the Library. We do not issue Library cards during or in advance for tours or class visits. Visitors with established accounts may check out items using their Greenwood Library card in accordance with the Library’s circulation policies for community users.
