About OStaff User Accounts

Why do I need an Ostaff account?

Some Ostaff content is sensitive. To access protected content, faculty and staff at OhioLINK member libraries must have an OStaff account.

What is an Ostaff acount username?

Your Ostaff account username is your institutional email address, for example "jdoe@somewhere.edu".
Sorry, Ostaff accounts cannot use a Gmail or personal email address.

How do I get an account?

Your institution's OhioLINK Lead Implementor must request your Ostaff account. If you are not sure who that is, please check with your supervisor or library director. Lead implementors complete an online form or may email a request to OhioLINK Support with the name and email address for new accounts.

Once your Ostaff account is set up, you will receive an email with a temporary password. Please change the temporary password as soon as possible. See also: Instructions to set or reset your Ostaff password
