A guide for students in photography classes- created by librarian Maryke Barber


I'm Maryke, the Arts Librarian here at Hollins. I made this guide to help you with the steps of your research assignment:

  1. Get started with encyclopedias and other reference books
  2. Find more detail in books and eBooks
  3. Search for journal articles
  4. Find images, and more!

If you'd like some help, please contact me at, 540-362-6592, or come find me in Room 102 at the library.

If I'm not in my office, you can make an appointment with me.
