American libraries might be very different from those in your native country. Here at VU, the Christopher Center offers many resources to help our students on campus. We have books, videos, CD-ROMs, magazines, computers, and electronic resources-- all chosen for you.

This Subject Guide offers you quick, guided access to recommended resources for Interlink students.  Click on a tab above to access that particular resource area.

We look forward to seeing you in the Library!
