Borrow, Renew, Request

Library users may borrow books and media materials with a current University-issued ID or a special library card. If the material is not available at Roesch Library, you can use the OhioLINK catalog to request books from another OhioLINK member institution. Books not found through OhioLINK can be requested through Interlibrary Loan. ILL use is restricted to current UD students, faculty and staff.

Review materials checked out and status of OhioLINK materials requested by logging into My Library Account.

Roesch Library and OhioLINK items that have been requested are held for ten days. If the patron who has requested the item does not pick it up within that time period, the item will be returned to its home institution.

For more information call the Knowledge Hub at 937-229-4270 or Access Services at 937-229-4234.
