Archives and Special Collections

Located on the first floor of the Olin Library, the Department of Archives and Special Collections acquires, preserves, and makes accessible unique and rare materials documenting the history of Rollins College and the Central Florida community. Our holdings include physical and digital collections. We welcome all members of the Rollins community and the general public. 

Starting in September 2021 and until further notice, on-site visits to the Archives & Special Collections are available to members of Rollins community with valid R-cards, and to community users with research needs for the print collections in the College Archives. An individual appointment is required in advance, a form of ID is required, and mask-wearing while indoors is mandatory. Visitors from outside the College will be escorted to and from the Archives for their appointments. Due to safety protocols, it is not possible to browse the Library at this time. For research appointments and additional information, please contact or call us at 407-646-2421.
