Olin Library

Request Forms

The library offers a variety of services that are available through a convenient form submission. If you encounter any problems with these forms, you can contact our Digital Services Specialist.

Book a Room

The library has space available to the Rollins community to use for classes and events. Learn more about the available spaces here before reserving a room through the Virtual EMS system.

Questions about room reservations can be directed to Scheduling and Event Services or our Office & Facilities Coordinator.

Celebration of Rollins Scholarship

A new campus annual event and ongoing program hosted by the Olin Library and the Office of the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts to recognize scholarly publications and creative works by the Rollins community, including faculty, students and staff.

Deadline to submit 2023 publications/expressive art works is December 15, 2023.

Database Recommendation Form

Rollins faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to use this form to recommend databases for the library to subscribe to.

All completed database recommendation forms will be sent to the Electronic Resources Librarian and the department’s liaison librarian, who will contact the submitter to begin a formal review and possible trial. A trial will allow the library to evaluate the database and gather valuable feedback from the campus community in order to make an informed purchasing decision.

Faculty Reserve Form

If you are teaching a class and need to put materials on reserve, you can do so with this form.

Our Circulation and Information staff can assist with any reserves questions.

Interlibrary Loan

If the Olin Library doesn’t have access to an article, book, or film, we can attempt to get the item for you via Interlibrary Loan from another library. Books and films are delivered to the library for you to pick up at the Circulation and Information Desk, and articles are delivered to you electronically in .pdf format.

Your Interlibrary Loan login information is your regular FoxID and password.

Visit our  helpful guide on Interlibrary Loan for a step-by-step process.

Journal Recommendation Form

All completed journal recommendation forms will be sent to the Head of Collections, Acquisitions Coordinator, and Electronic Resources Librarian.

The budget for new journals is limited as they require a commitment to an ongoing expenditure of funds, instead of a one-time purchase. A new journal recommendation may require a re-evaluation of existing subscriptions, which may lead to a cancellation of a current subscription of comparable cost. Any decision regarding changes to current journals will require discussions at the academic department level in consultation with the library.

Library Purchase Recommendation Form

Rollins faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to use this form to recommend items for the library to purchase.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.

Request an Instruction Class

Olin librarians are available to teach library instruction classes on request and are available to answer any questions about instruction sessions.

Rollins faculty can fill out this form and the liaison librarian for the specified department/program will reach out.

Request for Reconsideration of Material Form

The Dean and Head of Collections of Olin Library has established a Material Challenge policy and procedure for gathering input about particular materials and resources available in the collection.
