Book Depository

The Library Book Depository provides off-campus storage of research materials for use by faculty, researchers and students.

This is not a public facility.


Requesting Items from the Depository:

Students and faculty of The Ohio State University and OhioLINK institutions can submit requests for circulating materials stored at the Depository at any OSU Libraries circulation desk on campus, or directly on-line through the Libraries catalog. Depository staff will pull the requested material and send the item(s) to the pickup location designated by the individual. 

The quickest way to receive an item is to designate the circulation desk at the Thompson or 18th Avenue Library as pickup location. Requests placed before 3:00 pm are processed and typically delivered the following morning after 11:00 am. Holiday requests are processed the morning of the first workday after the holiday.
