Faculty Carrels

Roesch Library has a limited number of study carrels for faculty and graduate students to reserve throughout the entire academic year. To be eligible, faculty must be able to provide a brief description of a current research project that would demonstrate need for extensive on-site use of library resources. Graduate students must be able to provide a letter from their advisor confirming completion of their course work and are currently writing their thesis or dissertation.

If you are interested in applying for one of these carrels, please contact the Operations Coordinator at 229-4228. If your application is approved, the yearly fee is $100.00.

Although study carrels are lockable, we recommend you do not leave items of value in them. Books and material still need to be checked out at the Circulation Desk before being kept in the study carrel. Issues involving lighting, air temperature or trash pickup may be addressed to the Operations Coordinator.

Poster Printing Service

The University Libraries are now offering poster printing services to all staff, faculty and students. Posters are printed on a 48 hour turn-around, Monday through Friday. If you submit on Friday, your poster will be available on Tuesday. You will receive a confirmation email once your poster has been printed with pick-up instructions. Payment is due upon receipt. Priority printing is given to educational and presentational posters. Poster printing services will be unavailable during Stander Poster printing each year.



Materials can be placed on course reserves or electronic reserves. Course Reserves are hard copy materials held in Roesch Library that can be checked out from the circulation desk for varying lengths of time as determined by the instructor. Electronic Reserves allow instructors to make selected material available to their students electronically through Isidore.


Roesch 2U

Roesch 2U is a service provided by Roesch Library that delivers materials requested by faculty to their department administrative office. Deliveries are made Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during normal semesters. Regardless if the material is from Roesch Library, OhioLINK, or Interlibrary Loan, the material will still be delivered. Faculty are responsible for returning materials back to the library when they are due.
