Cross-registered Olin and Wellesley Students
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 Babson username and password for electronic resources.

Olin & Wellesley Students, Staff, and Faculty
Olin and Wellesley staff and faculty, as well as students that are not cross-registered, are eligible for physical Babson library cards and are able to check out library materials. Loan periods match those of their Babson counterparts.

Online Resource Access
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.

  • The extended Babson community includes alumni, trustees, members of the Babson Corporation, corporate partners, and spouse and children of Babson students, faculty, and staff.
  • Walk-in visitors are welcome to browse items in the stacks but may not check out library materials, unless they choose to purchase a visitor's library card for $10/year. The card can be purchased at the Information Desk by check or cash (checks should be made out to Babson College).
