Cross-Registered Olin Students at Babson

All cross-registered users are free to use and borrow Babson's library resources with no limitations. Simply use your Babson-issued OneCard for physical items and your Babson username and password for electronic resources.

Electronic Resources

The terms of our license agreements typically limit off-campus access to electronic resources (ebooks, databases, or other electronic resources) to current Babson students, faculty and staff. To access most electronic resources, Olin and Wellesley users must come to Horn Library and view them on library desktops. The full list of databases available on-campus can be viewed on the Databases for Visitors page.

Olin & Wellesley Students, Staff, and Faculty
