For faculty linking to or embedding video from the Films on Demand database: the URLs will be changing this week and you will need to update your links.
While the old URLs will still work, they direct users to a general index page from which they must browse to the desired title. To include a link, find the video or clip you wish from the database and scroll to the bottom of the page. Select the URL and place that link in Canvas.
As always, if you need help, please don’t hesitate to ask us!
The Library’s computer printers use LancerCa$h. All users will need a current LancerCard or Guest Card for printing. Guest cards can be purchased for one dollar at a LancerCa$h add-value station, one of which is in the Library between the copiers. Printing costs 9 cents per page for black and white, and one dollar per page for color.
To print, you will log on to any of the desktop computers in the Library and open the file you wish to print, then follow the steps below.
- Go to the File menu and choose “Print”.
- Select Printer 1 or 2 for black & white or Color for color printing.
- Click Print.
- When prompted, put in a username and password of your choice.
- Go to the printer station located against the glass wall in the Learning Commons.
- Swipe your LancerCard.
- Select your print job
- Enter your password.
- Select the Print button.
- Retrieve your black and white print job from Printer 1 or 2 located beside the computers. Retrieve your color print job from the color printer which is located to the left, past the copiers and the double doors.

We asked our staff what advice they would give to first year students at Longwood. What advice would you give?
Brad Taylor, Library Information Specialist
1. Always re-write your notes after class and read over your notes before class – professors give pop quizzes.
2. Make friends in all your classes and outside of class
3. Participate in class – Sometimes extra points toward your grade
4. Enjoy College Life – Goes by way too fast!
Tammy Hines, Librarian
The early bird gets the newest DVDs!
Ken Vaiden, Multimedia Specialist
Rest, Relax, Trust in your abilities, work hard, do not be afraid to ask for help, remember to enjoy the experience.
Amanda Hartman, Librarian
It’s okay to admit that you need help! I thought I was supposed to already know how to do everything when I started college, but I learned a lot by asking my professors, librarians, and other college staff. Remember that we are here to help you succeed!
Oh, and keep your eyes open for free food!
Ruth Gowin, Library Information Specialist
Don’t go crazy your first time being away from parents and the structure they provided you back home! Remember the reason you are here – to study and learn, not to party! I have seen students who can not handle their newfound freedom and flunk out, sadly. This is a big opportunity lost.
