SDV 100 and 101 Online: NOVACard/Library Card

A guide to library resources for students in online courses

NOVACard/Library Card

NOVACard is the official identification card of Northern Virginia Community College. All NOVA students are encouraged to get a free NOVACard in order to access many benefits and services. It is also your library card, which you will use to borrow materials, and the card you will use to pay for printing or photocopying.

To get your NOVACard, create a free account. Then upload a favorite photo and stop by any NOVACard office to pick up your new NOVACard.

You can also add funds to your card's account in order to print/photocopy while on campus.

George Mason University Privileges

George Mason University Libraries are open to the public, and as a NOVA student you have borrowing privileges at GMU's libraries.  To check items out you must have a valid NOVACard and a copy of your registration for the current semester.
