Share and Save Your Rollins Memories!

In honor of American Archives Month (October), the Rollins College Archive has created an online portal for all members of the Rollins community to share their favorite Rollins memories. Visit Rollins Reminiscences  on the College archives’ website to share your stories, quotes, advice, photos, and other Rollins remembrances during the month of October.  All submissions will be collected and preserved by the College archives for future generations of Tars to learn from and enjoy.  So share your story today!

Download the BluuBeam App and Get the Library Working for You!

Starting this fall, targeted recommendations for library resources and services will be available in various spots across campus through BluuBeam, a proximity-triggered information system that iPhone and Android users can access with a free app.
BluuBeam uses iBeacon technology and Bluetooth Low Energy transmitters to reach out to people in a specific location. If the app is on your phone, you will be notified when a Beam is in your area; you might also see the BluuBeam logo in spots where a beam is available. The information sent through these Beams is intended to be of special interest to the people in that area. For example, BluuBeam users in the Cornell Fine Arts building might find links to good online collections of art while users in Crummer will be reminded that Dorothy Mays is ready to work with them. This information can be saved on your phone and even shared with others who aren’t in the area.
To access BluuBeam, start by installing the free app from the iTunes, the Google
store or athttp://bluubeam.com/pages/download.
