Resources and Support to ensure Continuity of Instruction
The response to COVID-19 at Hollins and elsewhere includes some limitations on library services, while many others, including all of our online resources and our staff, will remain available.
Materials (updated 6/9)
For more information on the library's fair use analysis regarding digitization, e-mail Luke Vilelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Collections and Archives will not be available during this time, with the exception of materials that have been digitized and made available via the Hollins Digital Commons.
All checked out materials scheduled to come due in Summer will be given new later due dates.
Please remember to return any items you have checked out from the library the next time you are on campus. Login to your library account for a complete list of items to return.
For many students, this will be when you come to pick up items from your dorm room. The university will communicate when it is safe to return to campus – please remember to bring your library items with you.
Waiting Until Fall is Fine
If you are not returning this summer but will be enrolled at Hollins during Fall 2020, you can return items when in-person classes resume. We will adjust due dates once plans for the fall semester are announced.
Everyone is welcome to mail items back to the library if you'd prefer to return them immediately. The USPS's Media Mail will be the most cost-effective option:
Wyndham Robertson Library

Using Our Drop Box
Finally, if you live in the Roanoke Valley you can return your items any time to the drop-box outside the library.
