Note: A question about the library’s Document Delivery Services was brought up during our last meeting.  When articles and book chapters are not available electronically but are part of the VCU Libraries’ print collection, you can pay $5 to have it delivered to you electronically.  (This service is free for distance-learning students.)  A list of the VCU Libraries’ Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services fees is available online.
