OhioLINK Borrowing and Requesting Materials for Pickup

You can request materials from Ohio University Libraries (Athens and regional campuses) using the Request button in the ALICE Catalog. You can also request items from over 100 libraries throughout Ohio via the OhioLINK Library Catalog.  If you need something that’s not available from OhioLINK, you can request it via Interlibrary Loan and Document Express.

Items requested from Alden Library, the Music and Dance Library, and the Library Annex are usually available for pickup on the next business day. Items from regional campus libraries and OhioLINK usually arrive in 3-5 business days. You will receive an email when your item is available for pickup. You can also check the status of your requests in My Library Record.

Materials can be picked up at the Alden Library 4th Floor Service Desk. Faculty and staff can also enroll for delivery to your department’s offices.

Borrowing rules and loan periods are different for each type of library user.  See our borrowing page for information about how long you can keep an item and how many books you can check out.
