Welcome to the L. Douglas Wilder Library
& Learning Resource Center

Greetings and welcome to the L. Douglas Wilder Library and Learning Resource Center.

The Office of Library Administration handles all administrative and business affairs for the library faculty and staff.We are proud of our history as one of the nation's older historically black colleges (HBCUs), founded in 1865. Our library was formerly the William J. Clark Library located in the historic landmark Belgian Friendship Building given to the University by the government of Belgium in 1941.

In 1997 we relocated to a new facility on campus named after Virginia Union's most celebrated alumnus: L. Douglas Wilder, humanitarian, civil rights leader and the first elected African-American governor (1990-1994) in the nation. The library houses The Wilder Collection which is a very popular national and international attraction. The library faculty and staff are eager to help you find and evaluate the information sources you need.We hope you find our web pages helpful and will visit us on the campus of Virginia Union University.

Administrative Office Hours are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Call or visit the office for library tour information or to schedule bibliographic instruction classes.The telephone number is (804) 257-5820.  We will be happy to assist you.
