The Olin Library is located in a facility of roughly 10,000 square feet on the first and lower floors of Milas Hall. It is conveniently located off of the main lobby, close to Admission, Information Technology and faculty offices. It offers a variety of attractive spaces for study and research-including 5 small group study rooms for group projects.

The first floor provides a workstation, a copier/printer/scanner, space for consulting with staff, open study space and four group study rooms. It also houses current Reserves, and the Art, Design, Photography, Crafts, and Pedagogy print collections.

The lower level includes three additional workstations, a microfilm/fiche reader/scanner, an attractive area for browsing our interdisciplinary collection of journals and magazines, as well as ample space for the rest of our collection of printed books and tools collection.

Workstations on both levels provide access to our virtual collections and to the tools available on the Olin network. Wireless access is available on both levels for members of the Olin community.
