Olympic World Library

The IOC believes that Olympic knowledge deserves to be shared and should be easily accessible to researchers worldwide. This is why the IOC has created the Olympic World Library (OWL) for you.

It is simultaneously a library catalogue, an information portal and a search engine for Olympic knowledge.

Via this portal you can access the unique collections of The Olympic Studies Centre, with all the official Olympic publications, and also find books, articles and selected dissertations produced by academics and professionals from all around the world. Just type in the publication that you are interested in using the search menu above. Click here to know how to borrow a publication.

The Olympic World Library offers a single platform to access the IOC’s entire digital and printed collection, and also connects you directly to other important publication platforms which publish Olympic content.
