Olds College Library is a NEOS library. NEOS is a collective of 18 libraries. This means you can use your Olds College ID/Library card to borrow resources directly from another NEOS library either in-person or using the request function in the library catalogue. Requested resources are delivered to Olds College for convenient pick up.

Features in My NEOS

There are several features you can access within the NEOS system, such as:

  • View items you have checked out
  • View Items you have on hold
  • Change your PIN (4 digits only)
  • Renew Items that are checked out

Your NEOS PIN

At the beginning of term you will receive an AUTOMATED email from the Library (check your Olds College email account!). This email contains your PIN number.

Forgot Your PIN?

If you can't find the email or forget your PIN you can have one automatically sent to your email from NEOS.
