About Library Services
n addition to providing extensive collections, we offer VDOT employees a variety of services staffed by librarians who are experts at finding and organizing information. We understand VDOT's information needs and have a track record of helping our patrons achieve their goals. Services include:
Borrow, Request & Renew
We loan thousands of physical items from our collections every year, and we will gladly ship to VDOT employees wherever they want to receive items (including home offices). Learn more about Library Borrowing.
ILL & Document Delivery
Through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service we can borrow esoteric or hard-to-find materials from libraries across the state, around the the country, and even overseas. Need an article, chapter or part of a printed report but not the whole thing. Or just don't want to deal with print? We'll scan and send what you need. Request items with this ILL Form.
Literature Search Service
VDOT employees who don't have the time (or the desire) to invest in a comprehensive literature search can utilize the library's free Literature Search Service. We're quick and thorough, and our sources are authoritative, so we tend to find sources others miss when they only search Google.
Library Lockers offer a secure location VDOT employees can use to store copyrighted materials for use by peers. Request a locker or add files to an existing locker with this Online Form.
Suggestions & Donations
Don't see what you need or want to inform us of a new publication you think we should acquire? Send your suggestions using this online Recommendation Form. We will also consider gifts and donations as described in this Gifts Policy.
Schedule a Visit
The library is now staffed "in person" Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00-3:00. However, days and hours are subject to change so we recommend scheduling your visit. Library staff are accessible online Monday-Friday during normal business hours.
