Shafer Court students group

The bible for students, the new VCU Bulletin is available in an updated website. The undergraduate, graduate and professional bulletins contain information about university policies, course descriptions and academic requirements for the programs available to the respective student populations. Visit bulletin.vcu.edu to view the 2015-16 edition on its new site.
One of the tabs on the site links to archives of bulletins housed in VCU Libraries’ Scholars Compass. These archives are useful to alumni and faculty.
Old bulletins, also called catalogs, and course descriptions are available on this archives site as PDF files. The electronic files of the bulletins from 1998 forward were transferred to the University Archives beginning in 2015. VCU Bulletins from the founding of the university, 1968 through 1998, are also available on this site as PDF files. The archived copy of each bulletin reflects all policies and procedures in effect at the beginning of the stated academic year. Printed copies of the VCU Bulletin from 1968 through 2003 are available in Special Collections and Archives at VCU Libraries.

New this fall, you may checkout books from the Study Skills and Test Prep section on the first floor of Cabell Library. Previously, these materials were for use only inside the building. Now, many may be checked out for three-day loans.
These items are available only to VCU students, staff and faculty. No renewals are permitted. Faculty may put these materials on reserve.
Librarians have organized these books on shelves in a central location to make it easy to find titles and guides that aid with time management, basic and advanced organizational skills, the transition to college life and other themes regarding developing effective approaches to studying and managing information. Also housed in the shelf are books about test prep for LSAT, GRE, MCAT and others.
In addition, two useful online guides have been updated for fall 2014:
