Dover Memorial Library

The Dover Memorial Library is an active and integral part of the University’s academic program. The Library’s collections, available on open stacks, support all areas of the curriculum with a total item count of approximately 850,000, including 230,000 volumes, 600,000 microforms, and many other materials such as videos, compact discs, and computer files. The Library has print and/or online full-text access to more than 230,000 periodicals and is a selective depository for federal government documents.


In addition to its collections, the library provides numerous services to reinforce and enhance the instructional process for both on and off-campus students.


Professional librarians are available for individual and group instruction. Several opportunities for research instruction are available: live chat, email, phone or face-to-face appointment. Interlibrary loan, audiovisual, and production (lamination, color copies, posters, etc.) services are available. The Library’s home page, www.gardner-webb.edu/library, provides access to our online catalog and databases as well as information about the Library facility, resources, services, and policies. Off-campus students will be prompted for the WebbConnect username and password in order to access the Library's subscription databases.



Off-campus students may use the Interlibrary Loan service in order to request books held in the Dover Memorial Library or in another library. Those books will be mailed to the student's home and must be returned to the Dover Memorial Library. Journal articles requested through Interlibrary Loan will be sent electronically to the student's email. Library privileges require compliance with stated policies affecting return of materials. Failure to comply may result in fines and suspension of check-out and Interlibrary Loan privileges.
