U.Va. LIBRARY MOBILE WEB SITE
In an effort to expand access to online resources and services, the U.Va. Library has released an updated version of the library's website that is optimized for handheld, web-enabled mobile phones and devices.
This web application now supports a broad range of mobile devices (including iPhones, I Touch, etc.), and offers "single search" discovery within the library's collections and article databases. You can also check for library hours, access a searchable staff directory, and get news feeds.

RESEARCH & WRITING
Need help determining the best research methodology for your study? Having trouble writing a chapter in your dissertation? Take a look at the books located to the right of the entrance to the CLIC in the Reference area labeled RESEARCH & WRITING. There you will find book titles such as "Educational Research: Planning, Conducting & Evaluating Quantitative and Qualitative Research" by John W. Creswell and many other books. These books must be used in the CLIC and usually, cannot be checked out. See the Librarian in Residence if you have any questions. Thanks!
