About The HLLC

The Hirons Library and Learning Center (HLLC) is dedicated to supporting and enriching the College curricula through the provision of print and non-print materials to students and faculty and to furthering the cause of lifelong education through instruction in the effective use of library resources. The HLLC contains two distinct spaces:

  • The Knowledge Commons, which contains full-text volumes that are housed in a robust discovery tool (Lightning Search) which provides direct access to online collections
  • The John R. Miller Academic Resource Center (ARC), a collaborative learning space which supports college faculty by providing a professionally monitored environment for students to complete proctored assessments and receive learning support

Research
