Policies and a Message
Dear Students, Faculty and Parents,
Welcome to the Libraries at High Point University!
My name is David Bryden and I have been the Director of Library Services since 2005 and I love every minute of my time at HPU. We have several staffed libraries at High Point University. Herman H. and Louise M. Smith Library is the main library and holds the majority of the book collection. The University Center now has a quiet study learning commons and our most recent library is the School of Education Curriculum Center, which holds the juvenile collection. We also maintain a furniture collection in Norton Hall and a small collection in the Qubein School of Communication.We have the best library and library staff! They are the most helpful group of professionals that you could possibly find. From reference services and the time that we spend helping our students to the way our books are displayed and shelved, we endeavor to make your time at our libraries helpful and pleasant. If you do not find this promise to be true all you need to do is get in touch with me and I will help in any way that I can. That is my promise!
