In addition to check out privileges, community card holders may seek limited librarian’s assistance with resources at Collins Library. We encourage visitors to start with their public or academic library to ensure they have utilized their local or regional resources. Puget Sound students, faculty and staff have priority in Reference Service and the use of all library resources and equipment.
