Technology has radically transformed the higher education landscape.  The way students learn is fundamentally changing.  To meet these expectation, at Hunt Memorial Library we go beyond stacks of books.  We are a library evolved and relevant in the digital age.

Henry Alexander Hunt Memorial Library is the main library and information service building on campus.  The library is named in honor of Fort Valley Normal and Industrials school’s second Principal Mr. Henry A. Hunt, Sr.

Hunt Library continues to stimulate learning and research by providing resources and services centered on the needs of our student and faculty users.  Moreover, the mission of Hunt Library is to support the curricula of each academic disciple in regard to print and e-resources.

The library is a digital library and uses technology to enhance information research, literacy and learning.  With access and engagement, Hunt Library seeks to advance the cause of education and meet the mission of the Fort Valley State University.

Information Literacy. Through its Information Literacy sessions, librarians, in collaboration with the instructor, conduct classes in the use of databases, reference resources and how to look up information and get started with research.

Virtual Library.  As a member of the University System of Georgia, faculty and students have access to the library collections of all 26 institutions in the state by way of Gil Express, a document delivery service.  Through collaboration and resource sharing, Hunt Library participates in the GALILEO project, a worldwide web-based virtual library consortium in the University System of Georgia- that provides access to multiple information resources, including access to over 250 databases, indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals.

Document Delivery Services. Two types of Document Delivery Services (DDS) are in place at the library, wherein copies of journal articles and books and book chapters may be requested from other libraries. These two services are GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan (ILL). For most campus users in the University System of Georgia, this is a free service.

Distance Education. Teaching and Learning are important to student’s successful matriculation at Fort Valley State University. Therefore, library instruction in the use of the library and its resources are central to the services provided through the Public Services area of Hunt Library. Librarians work with students on all floors of the building and at the reference desk, not to mention social media networks, phone and the one-on-one reference interviews to help them find, locate and interpret information.

Computer Lab Accessibility provided by the Office of Information Technology and housed in the library, is for student use only, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Collaborative Learning. The library is a hub of collaboration with open work areas, large tables, casual seating and ample private space for meetings and engagement. In a digital world, the library adopts the latest in tech learning tools, and provides students with constant connectivity, mobility and access to the ever-expanding media environment. All study rooms and quiet study areas and are located on the second floor of the building.

Charging Stations. At Hunt Library, students can juice-up mobile devices. As more and more students bring devices to campus, the challenge for them is not to run out of power. Running out of battery power these days means running out of paper. Charged mobile devices help students to stay connected with the university and with one another.

University Archives and Special Collection. The University archives and Homie Regulus special collections Heritage Room is located in the library on the second floor. The University Archives houses historical documents of the Fort Valley State University and the local community.

Hunt Library at Warner Robins supports the Graduate Studies program at Fort Valley State University. Collection holdings are representative of 830 books and 10 selected journal titles.

Academic Coaching 

Academic Coaching at Fort Valley State University is designed to target and work with specific populations of students, namely freshmen cohorts, students on academic probation, students returning from academic suspension, and scholars. 

At times, Academic Coaching resembles mentoring, but it’s much deeper than that. At other times, Academic Coaching may look a lot like tutoring. Our academic coaches are more than willing to work with students to help them achieve success in the classroom; however, they focus more on the game plan for success and less on the specific content of the course. 

How Does Academic Coaching Work? 

Academic Coaching may look like counseling as students become comfortable with their coach. 

Academic Coaches: 

  1. Collaborate with students in developing a success plan. 

  1. Meet with students to help them take ownership of their academic success (by phone, virtual, in face-to-face meetings, or email). 

  1. Assist students with setting goals and weekly objectives. 

  1. Are well versed in academic strategies for success (such as time management, note-taking techniques, reading strategies, and goal setting) and refer students to resources on and off campus that can aid in students’ success, such as the Counseling Center, the Access and Accommodations center, online/virtual tutoring services, the Student Achievement Center, and Tutoring. 

  1. Complete Student Academic Progress Appeals forms. 

  1. Develop programming for students.

These courses are equivalent and accepted by all USG institutions to satisfy core requirements or prerequisites required for a particular major in a specific program.
