Library systems: Server restored

The library's circulation systems and online catalog have been restored. Please note that down time is anticipated later this week for system maintenance; information will be posted here as it becomes available.

Thank you for your patience.

Library Systems: Server Down

AU Library's circulation system (server) is currently down.  The library catalog is not available, OL requests will not be processed through our system, and it is not possible to view your record and renew items.

It is possible to pick up OL requests, course reserves, and check out general items.  For help with renewals and circulation, please call the main desk at ext 5400.

The OhioLINK catalog remains available; to locate AU library items, use OL catalog advanced search and limit search result location (1) to Ashland University (2).

We hope to have the problem rectified soon, updates will be posted throughout the day.
