This year, the MW Library will offer a free shuttle (on our school’s activity bus) to VCU’s Cabell Library on the first Wednesday school day of the month, October through June.
The inaugural trip in October was a success, so if you’re interested in taking the shuttle to pick up or return books or DVD’s to Cabell Library, there are THREE forms you must complete and return to Ms. DeGroat BEFORE you can take the shuttle. These must be returned by no later than the Monday before the Wednesday shuttle you’d like to take:
- Repeating field trip form
- University borrowing form
- VCU Libraries registration form
You need to pick up the field trip form from Ms. DeGroat. You can download the other two from the VCU Libraries Guide in the Dragons Research group in Schoology. Just scroll to the bottom of the guide, print the two PDFs, fill them out, get parent signatures where needed, and return them to Ms. DeGroat.
Once you’ve submitted all three forms, you are set for the rest of the school year and should not need to fill out more paperwork.
Since time at VCU will be brief (we need to get there and back within the MLWGS student lunch period), it is essential that you know what you’re looking for at Cabell Library BEFORE we get there. See the “Finding Books in VCU’s Cabell Library” section of the VCU Library Resources page of this site to help you prepare.
