Note about the library and COVID-19

Due to the physical library building being closed until further notice, several library services and procedures have been impacted. However, many of our services are still open, and our collections are still available! All online collections are accessible on your personal computers. Physical items are available for checkout with some restrictions.

For more information and current updates, please visit the Holman Library 2020 Updates link below this note.

Welcome to Holman Library!

We have many services and resources available to you. Here are a couple of video tutorials to help you get started.
