Alumnae Services

Mills College and Northeastern University alums are welcome to use the F. W. Olin Library. You must present your Mills student ID, Alumnae Association of Mills College (AAMC) membership card, or Northeastern University Alumni Association membership card in order to check out materials. All alums who have not used the F. W. Olin Library since June 2022 will need to provide a photo ID with their association membership card to register or re-register with library staff in order to set up their library account before borrowing materials.

Alums and guests may also access the internet and the library catalog via the NUWave-Guest network. Library databases and ebooks are not yet available to Mills College alumnae. Computing and printing are limited to current students, staff, and faculty only.
