If you are enrolled or employed at Case, you can logon to your library account with your Case network ID/password, via the Case Single SignOn Service. Read more below, for how PINs give you additional remote access privileges...

If you are a student, faculty, or staff at Case, your PIN also gives you software-free remote authentication to OhioLINK electronic databases and journals.

For current Case enrolled and employed individuals, it's a simple way to have 2 hours of remote access to OhioLINK-only electronic content, and you can reconnect as often as you need to use the reources! (Remote authentication to Case-only resources requires VPN software on your computer. Wireless on campus will also work at higher speeds on campus when you activate your VPN.) Use PIN authentication for OhioLINK-only resources across the U.S. and around the world!
If you have forgotten your library PIN, call the KSL Main Service Desk (or your home library at Case) and tell the staff you've forgotten your PIN. They'll ask you a couple of questions to identify you. Then they'll delete it (it's encrypted so staff can't tell what you used) and enter a generic PIN in your account.
You'll be able to login to your account and click on the icon to "Modify Your PIN" and set a new PIN of your choice. Staff at any Case library circulation desk can delete your PIN if you forget it—just call and ask them to delete the old one and create a new one for you.
General questions may be directed to the Kelvin Smith Library Main Service Desk 216-368-3506 or the Contact Us link on the library website.
