While you are studying away, the library at your host institution will be your first resource for research and access to unique materials. You have access to the following services from the Vassar Library and we encourage you to use them as needed.
If you have a research question or need help with a research project, e-mail the Research Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us about the project you are working on and what types of material you need.
Be sure to identify yourself as a JYA student and tell us where you are studying and what type of computer access you have.
You may request copies of material physically located in the Vassar Libraries by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Identify yourself as a JYA student. We will scan articles and book chapters and send them to you as PDFs. Provide your mailing address or FAX number if you are not able to access PDF files. We cannot copy whole books.
Please give us the complete citation (author, title, journal name, volume, issue, date, pages) for the article or book you need. Also please check the Vassar online catalog and provide the call number of the book or journal. For tips on identifying books or articles, use our Ask a Librarian service or contact the subject specialist in your area.
