SPOTLIGHT ON THE OLYMPIC STUDIES CENTRE
THE OLYMPIC STUDIES CENTRE – READY FOR THE GAMES
It’s just a few weeks until Rio and we want to make sure researchers can access all the publications related to the Games in Rio. We’ll be there to collect and preserve all the printed publications produced by the Olympic Family.
After the Games our collection will include Rio Games publications from the Organising Committee, the National Olympic Committees, the International Sports Federations, and the TOP Sponsors. You can already view and download over 200 Rio OGOC publications.
In addition to collecting new resources, we’ve also already handled 1200 information and research requests this year from people who are working hard to make these Games a success. We’ve helped professionals and researchers with all kinds of information, from the list of medallists to content on the cultural Olympiads, the Olympic programme and the history of Olympic marketing.
