James Miller

I’m the Discovery and Sciences Liaison Librarian. I’ve been at Hollins since 2013 and enjoy the variety at my job which includes improving user experience in library and information services, providing instruction and research consultations for sciences students, and advocating for open and affordable educational resources.

Whether you’re creating a first-year seminar project, a thesis, a submission to a professional journal, or anything in between, I’m available to help support your work.
