Jones Library invites you to collaborate on your research with our librarians, one-to-one or as a group, in-person or online, scheduled or not. You have a few options.
Jones Library offers library orientation and information-fluency instruction to support the mission of Brevard College and student success. These sessions can take place in the library, in the classroom, or interactive video tutorial, and can cover effective search strategies, evaluating information, organizational strategies for research projects, and documenting one's research.
We can help orient your students to the physical library or our research guides. Usually, we do this inperson, but coming soon, we'll be offering an asynchronous set of video tutorials and assessment.
Authority is Constructed and Contextual
Information Creation as a Process
Information has Value
Research as Inquiry
Scholarship as Conversation
Searching as Strategic Exploration

Books, scores, CDs, DVDs, etc.- We will accept nearly all book donations, but may not add the items to the library. All donated items are evaluated for their usefulness to the collection. Remaining items may be sold, placed on our "free book" cart, or donated for the AAUW book sale, at our discretion.
Office and art supplies - Markers, clean posterboard, glue sticks, pencils, pens, binders, notecards and notebooks are welcome but must be approved before you drop them off with us. These school supply resources are helpful to our students.
And of course, Brevard College is always grateful for monetary donations.
