Tablet Time-Out

Hey there! We hope you have been enjoying the use of Annandale Library’s tablet selection! We want to circulate our iPads, Nexus, Venue 8 and Kindle to as many students as possible.

Go check one out now, while you can, because the last day for loan before spring break is Wednesday, March 4th. We will be making some adjustments (adding apps, updating and general cleaning).

Let’s Time Travel!

The world around us has changed over and over again through the years. To view the past you can go to archaeological dig sites, read history book, etc. They say you don’t know where you are going unless you know where you’ve been. So have you ever wondered what the Annandale campus looked like in the 60s and 70s?

One of the most interesting features found on the Annandale campus is the NOVA History Collection. It just so happens to be located in the library (the CG building, in case you forgot!).

If you want experience using primary sources for your classes, (journalism, english, history) this is a great resource. Check out the digitized pictures and documents from Annandale’s past. Even if you don’t need to use the archive for work, it’s still fun to browse the pictures and see some silly 70s clothes!
