National Library Week 2013

The Alexandria Campus Library celebrates National Library Week April 15 - 20. 

In order to visually demonstrate the breadth and variety of our community, we ask library users to tell us where they are from by placing a pin on a map:

Find some fun facts about Your Library:

Did you know over 170,000 visits are made to this Library each semester?

And that students check out more materials from the Alexandria Campus Library than from any other campus?

The Alexandria Campus Library checks out more Course Reserve items (textbooks) than the libraries at Loudoun, Manassas, the MedicalEd and Woodbridge combined.

Our librarians and library staff have nine masters degrees between them. (and that’s just six people)

The Alexandria Library contains over 70,000 items.
Students searched Proquest over 210,000 times last year.

The Library adds over 2,000 books to the collection per semester.

Librarians teach over 130 classes per semester.

Almost 3,000 students receive research instruction in a classroom setting from campus librarians.

Use of online library resources has increased over 7 times in the last 7 years.
