The F. W. Olin Library is an intellectual center of Mills College and a focal point for academic research, a repository for information, and a gateway to other research collections.

Please visit the library website to access services.

The library supports student success through information literacy instruction and research help. We house materials supporting the College curriculum with emphasis on literature, music, dance, gender, sexuality, and ethnic studies. We also have robust leisure collections including popular fiction, comics, and magazines. Library materials can be accessed remotely via the library catalog and electronic databases.

The library is also home to the Special Collections in the Heller Rare Book Room. The collections include printed books and archives from the 15th century to the present including a leaf from a Gutenberg Bible, and the Mills College archive.
