Preston Library

All Library Distance Learning services info/updates can be found at this one location.

  • Electronic Resources: All of the Library's e-collections (ebooks, streaming video, and journal, magazine, and newspaper content in our databases) are available off-Post via remote login. We have extensive electronic resources available across all disciplines.
  • Individual Research/Reference consultations and help: Librarians can work with faculty and cadets via email, over the phone, and employ Skype, Zoom, and/or Google Hangouts for synchronous live sessions with desktop sharing.
  • Canvas platform support: LTC Kocevar-Weidinger is providing individual or group support for use of Canvas. Assistance can be requested by e-mailing
  • Formal Research/Library Instruction: If faculty want formal library instruction for cadets, librarians can offer this in Canvas.
  • Course Reserves: We have an established Course Reserves site with which faculty and cadets are already familiar; course reserves include many electronic materials. For reserve items unavailable electronically, staff will prioritize working with affected faculty to digitize where possible, or to find an electronically available alternative.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Interlibrary loan services have been disrupted throughout Virginia and the country, with ILL departments now focused on supporting distance learning. We will no longer request physical items through ILL since these requests cannot be fulfilled. We will focus on delivery of resources electronically where possible.
