  • Get a Consortium Card!

    Is another college library closer than the Thomas Nelson libraries?  A Tidewater Consortium Card might work for you.

    Thomas Nelson students, faculty, and staff have library check out privileges at other academic institutions that participate in the Virginia Tidewater Consortium

    If you wish to check out materials at another academic library in the Tidewater area, bring a picture ID to the Checkout Desk at either campus to apply for a Consortium Card.  You'll need to apply once each semester to verify that you're a current student.
