Needing Research Assistance?

If you need help with a research question or if you have trouble finding a resource, ask a librarian! Our reference librarians will be more than happy to help you.

The Access Services Department is committed to meeting the various needs of the University's students, faculty, staff, and community patrons, by providing information and access to the library's materials and services. You can reach the Resource Desk by phone at (757) 352-4150 or by email at

Locating Items

If you've already determined a title or author, consult the Resource Desk for the exact physical location.

If you've yet to determine what item meets your needs, consult the Reference department with the Ask a Librarian option in the page header for this and other research assistance.

Checking Items Out

Library materials may be borrowed from the Regent University Library by bringing the items to the Resource Desk during library hours along with your student ID or library card. If you need assistance finding items, please ask at the Resource Desk. 

If you are a distance student, you can request all the items you need through Interlibrary Loan

Renewing Items

Items may be renewed onlinebefore the due date, by logging into your account. You can either "Renew All" to renew all the items you have out, or you can checkmark the box next to each item you would like to renew and select "Renew Marked".

Renewals may also be requested by email, by calling (757)352-4150, or by bringing a proper ID to the Resource Desk.

You can return your items at any time in one of the book-drops located in the Library parking lot or the Communication parking lot. You can also return your items directly at the Resource Desk during our hours of operation.
