Books from Hollins: OneSearch

Search for an item in libraries near you: >>

Worldcat: Find books in libraries worldwide, and order them via Inter-Library Loan if Hollins does not have them.


  • Using will sort your results by relevance; using will put our books first.
  • When searching for a person in Worldcat, it helps to add a search term (or two) about who they are/what they do - to sort them out from other people with the same name. Try the following formula for artists, for example:

Kathryn Clark and art*

or use the advanced search:

  • keyword: "kathryn clark"
  • subject: art*

Google Books contains full text for books in the public domain (pre-1923); partial text for books under copyright.

Very useful for finding out which books contain information on your topic; then you can order them via inter-library loan if Hollins doesn't have them.
