Access Scholars


Welcome to Collins Memorial Library! Navigating higher education can be intimidating. We have created this guide to help you feel better supported at the library and campus-wide. The resources and information included in this guide have been tailored to the needs of Access Program students, including first-generation students, students from minoritized groups that are underrepresented in higher education, and students from groups with socioeconomic statuses that are underrepresented in higher education.
