Find Library Resources


Find Articles


The Olin Library provides access to millions of articles through numerous databases.  You can search an individual database, or use R-Search to simultaneously search almost all of our resources simultaneously.



Find Books, Films, & More


You can search the entire collection of books, journals, films, devices, and more in our online catalog.  The catalog record will show you if the item is available and where it is located.  You can also find new books, and renew your materials.



Find a Database


The library subscribes to many databases across a wide range of subject areas.  Nearly all of these databases allow for multiple simultaneous users, and can be used from off campus.

When accessing a database from off campus, you will be prompted to log in to our proxy server with your FoxID and password.



Find Journals


If you are looking for a specific journal or other serial publication, the Olin Library might have access to it through one of our many databases, through a direct link to the publisher, as a paper copy on the shelf, or in our microform collection. If you are looking for a specific article within that journal, you can search for it within a database which contains it, via R-Search, or with our citation linker.



Find Reserves


The library provides two types of reserves - items held at the circulation desk, and e-reserves. 

You can check out reserves at the circulation desk by giving a circulation staff member the professor's name and/or the course name or number.  The return time varies for each reserve item, and some can't leave the library.  You'll be given this information at checkout.

E-Reserves are accessible online through our catalog as PDFs.  They can be opened in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat, and are password protected.  See your professor for the password to open reserves documents.  You can search for reserves by professor's name, course name, or course number.



Find Resources by Subject


Research guides are created by Olin librarians and provide helpful research assistance for a variety of subjects, disciplines, and classes.  Guides include links to books, online resources, and other information useful in the research process.



Rollins Scholarship Online


Rollins Scholarship Online (RSO) collects and organizes the research and scholarly output of Rollins faculty and students, and makes their work accessible to scholars and researchers worldwide. RSO also hosts journals, conferences, and other collections. RSO is administered by the Olin Library and serves as a permanent digital archive for these materials.
