Located on VU's Vincennes Campus in the Learning Resource Center, Shake Library serves VU students, faculty, staff, and people from the surrounding communities.  We provide research help to all, plus access to a wide selection of print and online sources. Stop by and use our computers, printers, study areas, and group study rooms. We even have librarians you can ask for help! Faculty may request specialized research guidance sessions for their classes from one of our dedicated liaison librarians as well as place specific items on reserve for class use. 

See our Policies and Services pages for more details.

Students, faculty, and staff can access the library's online resources from off-campus locations by signing into their MyVU account.
