Reference Services at Our Library: Mission and Scope

Wyndham Robertson Library promotes the access, evaluation and use of library information sources in all formats by all members of the Hollins University community. To this end, the library commits itself to effective use of electronic communications to provide users contact with and instruction from professional librarians who organize and provide both intellectual and physical access to library collections. Librarians will empower users to find information for themselves, as self-directed, active learners participating in a quality liberal arts education.

We regret that we can only answer reference questions from members of the Hollins community or questions about Hollins University and its library collections. If you are not affiliated with Hollins, please contact your local public library or use the Internet Public Library
