Director's Welcome

Welcome to the McGraw-Page Library! This site serves as a portal for faculty, staff, students, and guests to learn about our collections and spaces, access our electronic resources, and connect with excellent staff who are available to answer questions via chat, email, phone, or one-on-one consultations.

At the McGraw-Page Library, we recognize that academic work like studying, researching, writing papers, and creating presentations can be time-consuming, stressful, and sometimes intimidating. We also recognize that sometimes you just need a break. In support of both of these aspects of the college experience, a key part of our mission is to support opportunities for exploration, discovery, and creativity. We provide a lot of resources and technologies, but also expert staff who can help you put the pieces together to create something unique and interesting.

Libraries are unique in their ability to connect you a wide variety of knowledge and experiences of the past while also preparing you to make your own contributions to the future. So I encourage you to take advantage of the excellent tools, resources, and people available at the McGraw-Page Library. Enjoy the virtual reality and 3D printing technology in the Makerspace, but also explore our unique Special Collections and other print and online resources.

If you have a question about the library and how it can help you succeed at Randolph-Macon, or if you have a suggestion about how the library can improve, we want to hear from you! Drop off suggestions at the suggestion box located on the Information Desk on the first floor, ask questions of Information Desk staff or your Subject Librarian, or contact me directly.
