Most of the instructional facilities for Valor Christian College are housed in Canfield Hall, featuring six classrooms, two student lounge areas, the library and administrative offices.
The Valor Library is located just through the East entrance of Valor Christian College, by the Reception Desk. It is an integral part of the academic programs at Valor Christian College. Its mission is to provide the resources and services needed to support the instructional program and objectives of the college.
Lab Facilities at Valor
The Library has a collection of over 13,000 items comprising books, periodicals, DVDs, CDs, pamphlets, and curriculum materials. The periodicals collection is limited but many abstracts and journals are on-line through an online database of full text articles.
The library collections consist of the circulating collection, the Reference collection, the Thomas G. Bender collection, the Rare Book Collection and the periodicals collection. The Computer Lab is also housed within the library. The library also contains both a small study area, and soft seating for relaxation while reading.
VCC is a member of the Christian Library Consortium and OhioNET. Both organizations offer resources to us through interlibrary loan. This service is free of charge to students. Also, Ohio Christian University is approximately twenty-two miles away and they are willing to share their resources with VCC. Check with the librarian to learn how to take advantage of these services.
The Writing and Learning Center
The Writing and Learning Center (WLC) is located in the Valor Library. The WLC is designed to assist students in two ways. First, it provides research resources and information while also working with students to improve writing skills and final research papers. Second, it works with weak students in developing academic readiness by teaching strategies for studying and by providing a variety of tutoring services, such as test preparation, grammar and writing, computer skills, reading, scribing, and academic advising. The WLC is open every afternoon, Monday through Friday, and in the evening, Monday through Thursday. Students can make an appointment by signing up at the circulation desk in the Library or drop in on a first come/first served basis. Services are free to all Valor Christian College students.
Production and TV Studio
This facility is located on the main campus of WHC. Throughout the year students are involved in various projects, both on and off campus, that offer opportunities to gain experience in video production. These projects include video programs, chapel services, concentration projects, and specially assigned multimedia projects for various organizations.
A computer lab is located in the Valor Library. The lab consists of twelve computers and is available to all current students primarily for use on school-related projects. Each computer includes the following software: Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office (Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint), and a number of other programs. Personal use of the computers is permitted, but preference is given to students doing schoolwork. The lab is open during normal library hours. Music students can also access Encore for practice and music composition assignments.
This lab is located in Canfield Hall and consists of 14 keyboards, available for practice. Students must notify the Music Department for access; hours of operation depend upon demand.
