Interlibrary Loan: Borrowing Copies of Books and Materials from Other Libraries

The CCU Library partners with various library networks to provide interlibrary loan services to the CCU campus community. If you need a book, video, or other resource the CCU Library does not own, then use one of the following services to request an interlibrary loan.

 

OhioLINK (http://olc1.ohiolink.edu/search)

Search the OhioLINK catalog for books, videos, and other items. CCU students, faculty, and staff may request items directly from the OhioLINK catalog by clicking on the green "Request" button directly next to the catalog record for the items they wish to request. To make the request, type in your barcode number from the back of your CCU ID card. You will be contacted via email when the item arrives in the CCU library for you to pick up at the service desk.

 

SearchOhio (https://ohpir.westervillelibrary.org/)

All OhioLINK libraries, including CCU, are affiliated with SearchOhio, a network of public libraries throughout the State of Ohio. CCU students, faculty, and staff may request items directly from the SearchOhio catalog by clicking on the "Request Item" button. (This procedure is basically the same as the procedure for OhioLINK mentioned above.) To make the request, type in your barcode number from the back of your CCU ID card. You will be contacted via email when the item arrives in the library for you to pick up at the service desk.

 

WorldCat (https://www.worldcat.org/)

WorldCat allows members of the public to search for books and other items in libraries in the United States and throughout the world. If neither OhioLINK nor SearchOhio has the book or item that you are looking for, then search for the item in WorldCat. If you find the item listed in WorldCat, use the interlibrary loan form available on the WorldCat web site to request to borrow a copy of the book. The request you submit will be processed by the CCU Library interlibrary loan department, and you will be contacted via email when the item arrives in the library for you to pick up at the service desk.
