Library Serials Update

Greetings Olin Patrons

In order to make room for the thousands of print books we continue to buy each year, the Rollins College faculty from every department have carefully reviewed our collection of print and microform serials.

The vast majority of our serials have been online for many years, and we have found that people rarely use them in other formats. Over the next few days, our dedicated library employees will be working hard to remove the serials that were canceled long ago and that we no longer need to support the curriculum.  Soon we will have room for our newest books on the open shelves!
