Can I check out books and DVDs from the library?
Yes. Note that our library book stacks and collections are closed to the public to ensure safe handling of materials and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Current OHIO faculty (including emeriti), staff, and students can request items for self-pickup.
Use the "Request" button in the ALICE Catalog. You will be notified by email when your materials are ready, which will typically be within 5 business days for items from your home campus. Items requested from other campuses may take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your home library.
Hours and directions vary by campus location and are listed in the FAQ below.
If you are picking up books from Alden Library, a valid OHIO ID is required to enter Alden during the Spring 2021 semester. If you have lost your ID or your ID does not work, you will need to request a new ID card.
