The JW and Dorothy Bell Library
The J. W. and Dorothy Bell Library is an integral part of the teaching program at Victory University. It seeks to extend the work of the classroom in breadth and depth, to provide for student and faculty research, and to encourage reading beyond course requirements. The collection houses over 56,000 volumes, which include books, bound journals, videos, DVD’s, tapes, CD’s, microfiche, etc. Study carrels and a Curriculum Resource Center are provided.
Subscriptions to approximately 64 periodicals are maintained with back issues either in bound, CD-Rom, or microfiche formats. A photocopier, microfilm reader/printer, and computers are provided for student use. The Library has reciprocal use agreements with nine other post-secondary institutions in Memphis, thus ensuring that students have access to the best resources available in this area.
The Tennessee Electronic Library (Infotrac, Ebsco Points of View, Newsbank, and Learning Express), Ebsco databases including Academic Search Elite, Business Source Elite, ATLA/ATLAS, and PsycInfo/PsycArticles, JStor, and Wilson Education Full-Text are also available in the library. In addition, the Library is a member of an interlibrary loan network, making it possible for students, non-students, faculty, and staff to request materials not readily available at the library.
