The library provides access to an abundance of physical and digital collections.  If  you do not find what you need in our collections, we are part of a network of libraries called the Orbis Cascade Alliance that can easily deliver materials  through a system we call Summit.

Our distinctive collections provide unique opportunities for students and researchers to work with one-of-a-kind items. Visit our Archives and Special Collections to learn more about the history of Puget Sound and opportunities to work with historical rare books and documents.

On behalf of all the staff at Collins Library, we hope you will all visit the Library often and freely share your thoughts about our services, facilities, and resources.  You can email me directly: jcarlin@pugetsound.edu or use our Tell Us What You Think link.

With best wishes for a successful and fulfilling academic experience.

-Jane A. Carlin, Library Director
