About ODIN

The Online Dakota Information Network is a consortium of North Dakota University System (NDUS) academic libraries, private academic libraries, public libraries, K-12 libraries and special libraries.  ODIN is an entity of NDUS and provides unified, cost effective and creative approaches to the acquisition, management and sharing of information/knowledge resources. ODIN supports the shared mission of over 60 member libraries to contribute to the intellectual and cultural growth of all users.  The libraries vary in size and are located across North Dakota. Consortium funding is provided by annual contributions from member libraries & legislatively appropriated dollars.  The consortium has a 7-member Steering Committee and an Advisory Council of Library Leads, consisting of one lead staff of each member library. Management and administration of the consortium is coordinated by a Director of ODIN who is employed by Core Technology Services of the NDUS. ODIN libraries provide a broad range of both physical, electronic and digital materials. Member libraries also provide services and programming to serve all ages and diverse populations. Many member libraries work in close partnership with neighboring libraries in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. 


ODIN academic libraries are transitioning from Ex Libris Aleph to Ex Libris Alma Library Services Platform which includes the discovery interface Primo VE – expected GO-LIVE is July 29, 2020.  ODIN public, school & special libraries use the Polaris integrated library system by Innovative Interfaces.  EZProxy is the preferred off-site authentication method.  The Consortium provides a forum for discussion and cooperation.  Member libraries participate in user groups, training sessions, and more as they strive to promote excellence in learning and research through innovative, collaborative and cost-effective approaches to information resources and services.
