SearchOhio is a partner with the OhioLINK system, which serves academic libraries. SearchOhio's partnership with OhioLINK means that you can get items under different terms, depending on the lender. Please note the differences in renewals, fines, fees, and item limits between items that are lent by a SearchOhio member and those lent by an OhioLINK member.
Materials that can’t be borrowed through SearchOhio or OhioLINK may still be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
Contact Adult Services to request books and other material through WorldCat. Reasonable attempts are made to borrow materials in this way but not all requests are able to be filled.
Loan period and renewals vary depending on the lending library.
