About Rollins

Blake Robinson

Business Librarian

I am the Business Librarian at Rollins College. I serve as a liaison and partner in teaching and research for Business, Economics, Social Entrepreneurship, Health Professions, and the Crummer School of Business. I teach information literacy instruction in these areas and provide research assistance for students from across the college. In addition, I work with our Collections Management team to ensure Olin Library's resource meet our patrons' educational needs. Finally, as a junior faculty member, I engage in original research and publication and serve in both college-wide and profession-wide capacities.

My previous experience includes work in academic, government, and public libraries in a range of roles. These roles include reference, instruction and outreach, and special collections. Concerning reference, I am particularly adept in the areas of business, health, government, and historical information. My teaching experience includes academic information literacy instruction, presentations for state government agencies, and statewide webinars. I enjoy helping students and faculty however I can and, I look forward to working with you.
