AskAway is a BC post-secondary online chat reference service. You can get help from librarians with finding resources on your research topic.
Student staff workers are hired in September and sometimes January and are trained to
assist students with research methods, troubleshooting, and use of the online resources.
Attending students are invited to apply.
Robert W. Sterling Sr. Memorial Library
The NVIT library, at the Merritt and Vancouver campus, is designed to meet the learning needs of students and teaching needs of instructors and staff. The library promotes the on-going development of research skills and independent study habits to encourage lifelong learning among students. The library staff is here to assist everyone and all questions are welcomed.
As a partner in BC's Electronic Library Network, NVIT co-operates with other post-secondary libraries to provide expanded access to information. In the library online catalogue over 89,000 titles of full-text electronic books are available. Internet access and a self-serve photocopier are also available in the library.
The library computer lab has 22 computer stations. The library also loans instructional equipment, including cameras, and video recorders. A spacious layout allows both private and group study areas. Two seminar rooms can be booked for group meetings. Food and drinks are not allowed in the computer lab.
The NVIT library has an open learning environment where discussion is encouraged. There is a space at the back of the Merritt campus library designated as a “quiet” zone. Students can bring food and drink into the library but food containers must be discarded outside of the library and drinks must have lids.
