Connecting to library resources just got easier! You can now obtain access to library resources with the username and password you use to check your Hollins email account. This username and password is called your network ID. If you are unsure about your username, it is a combination of your last name and initials. For example:
Name: Jane Doe Smith
Campus Network ID: smithjd
Password: your email password
The library has changed this process to make using our resources simpler. Now you can access our databases, your library account, and request materials using the same username and password you use for other Hollins features. If you have questions about this process or need assistance please contact Library Circulation Services at 540.362.6634 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Lottie Moon (1840-1912): Hollins Alumna, Missionary to China, Activist.”
2012 marked the hundredth anniversary of Lottie Moon’s death. Although she is well known within the Southern Baptist Convention, new scholarship suggests that she played a much larger role in the history of southern women.
The exhibit is located on the 3rd floor of the library, next to the Hollins Room.
