Are you using OhioLINK?

Did you find just the right item in AU Library catalog only to realize it is checked out to someone else?  Is the item you need off-campus? Do you need an item we do not have?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, be sure to check OhioLINK! The item you want may be available at another library; request the item and it can be delivered here, or to any other participating OhioLINK library location (pick-up anywhere), for free.

Yes.  Free.  Really!

AU Librarian's will be able to help you locate and request OhioLINK items. Our friendly circulation staff will guide you through the check-out process when your item arrives, provide information about due dates, and can help with renewals. Ask for help at the main desk, we'll take it from there.
