Request materials through ILLiad for items:
We ship requests via UPS to users outside the immediate Blacksburg area (Montgomery, Giles and Pulaski counties).
Articles, book chapters, and many technical papers are delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account. Occasionally, due to copyright restrictions, a paper copy of an article or standard are sent to the mailing address listed on your account.
There are several services that will alert you to new articles or that deliver the table of contents of journals directly to your email or RSS reader.
There are several different citation (aka bibliographic) managers available. This guide will help you think about the features that are most applicable, so you can choose a manager that will best fit your needs. The library provides training and support for the following citation managers:
Statistical Applications and Innovations Group (SAIG) -- Helping non-statisticians turn data into insight. Work with us to design experiments, analyze and plot data, run statistical software, and interpret results.
The Virginia Tech Writing Center -- Through our individual writing consultations and multilingual services, we offer undergraduate and graduate students a range of resources for developing their communication skills. All of our services are free and online only. There are two types of writing sessions available, as well as conversation support.
