The F. W. Olin Library is an intellectual center of Mills College. As such, the Library functions as a focal point for academic research, a repository for information, and a gateway to other research collections. Please see our website to access Library services.olin library

The Library supports student success through information literacy instruction and research help. We house materials supporting the College curriculum as well as robust leisure collections including popular fiction, comics, and magazines. Library materials can be accessed remotely via the 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 copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, a Mozart manuscript, a leaf from a Gutenberg Bible, and the Mills College archive.
