How do I get a VTC card?
Current TCC students, faculty, and staff can apply for a Virginia Tidewater Consortium card to access resources at a number of local academic libraries.
The Virginia Tidewater Consortium for Higher Education (VTC) serves as the major vehicle for regional cooperation among institutions of higher education and affiliated agencies in the Hampton Roads. Since 1973, VTC institution libraries have offered reciprocal borrowing services to students, faculty and staff of VTC institutions. In many cases, the electronic resources and services of VTC libraries are also available to members. Students, faculty and staff who wish to take advantage of available resources and services at other VTC libraries must obtain a VTC library card from their home institution.
How do I get a VTC library card?
You can get a VTC library card from your TCC campus library. In order to get the VTC library card, you must be a currently enrolled student at TCC and in good standing with TCC Libraries (no overdue books or debts). Visit a campus library, and fill out an application at the circulation desk. Be sure to bring your TCC student id card.
Before visiting a VTC library, please call to confirm their circulation and printing policies. Take your VTC library card, TCC student ID card and another form of photo ID.
