Collection & Accounts Overview

TIND Catalog Account

All current Olin students, faculty, and staff automatically have a TIND account created for them, however, you must activate it by logging in one time to be able to use the self-checkout stations. Students, faculty and staff that arrived prior to 2016 have already had their accounts activated.

Use your Olin credentials - username and password.

Activate your account

Alumni are eligible for circulating privileges but you need to contact us using your non-olin email address. We will update your account with current contact information, then you can continue to check out Books, DVD/Blueray and CDs. Unfortunately, we don't allow alumni to check out tools at this time.

BOW community members should email library@olin.edu to request a circulating account.

Optional Accounts

In order to access the productivity features of most subscription databases you will need to create an account. Creating an account in most of our databases will help you:

  • Save searches
  • Use foldering/organization tools
  • Export citations
  • Share your work across a team

We don't currently have single sign on implemented for our subscriptions but are exploring this option now.

You will need to create an account to download and read eBooks offline across databases. Here are some direct links to account creation information for our frequently used resources.
