OhioLINK is an Ohio library consortium that provides access to nearly 50 million library items statewide. The OhioLINK catalog contains almost 13 million unique titles from its over 90 member libraries. Students, Faculty, Staff and card holders from participating libraries can find and request materials online.
If a book you are looking for is not available at OSU Libraries, you may request an available copy from the OhioLINK Catalog.
If you have done a search in OSU's catalog and learned that the item either isn't owned or is unavailable at OSU, the search can be automatically transferred to the OhioLINK Central Catalog. In the OSU catalog, click on the OhioLINK Catalog button in the upper right portion of the screen; For information about tracking your OhioLINK request click on the following link tracking link. Please note all library notices, including OhioLINK pickup notices, are sent via email only. If you do not have an email address in your record, please follow the instructions in View Your Circulation Record to see when a requested book is ready for pick up.
OhioLINK books may be borrowed by Faculty/Staff for 42 days and Student/Courtesy Patrons for 21 days with up to 6 renewals, provided another request has not been placed on the item. If a request is placed on the item you will not be able to renew it. Unlike OSU, OhioLINK overdue fines are charged at the rate of $.50 per day from the due date, whether the item has been recalled or not.
Courtesy patrons are limited to 5 OhioLINK items at any time on their record. This includes items in transit to and from locations.
