University of Dayton students, faculty and staff may borrow books, multimedia, and media equipment with their current University-issued ID (Flyer Card).

Contactless Pickup

If you prefer to not enter the building, you may pick up your holds between 8 a.m. and noon Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This includes items from University libraries, OhioLINK and interlibrary loan. To maintain the recommended distancing at the time of pickup, push the call button near the library’s east entrance (facing St. Mary's Hall) to give your UD ID number. A staff member will check the books out and bring them to the vestibule.

In addition to books, magazines, and journals, you can check out media equipment, Kindles, phone chargers, extension cords, and even a button maker!

Media Equipment and More
Students, faculty and staff are eligible to borrow materials from University Libraries as well as alumni and other people who do not have a current account at the university.  Borrowing privileges vary according to borrower status. Questions about borrowing? Contact or call 937-229-4234. 

Eligible Borrowers
If the library doesn't have what you need or the item you want isn't available, we can request materials from other library through OhioLINK or interlibrary loan. 

OhioLINK and Interlibrary Loan

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the issuance of courtesy cards has been suspended at this time.

There are no overdue fines for library materials, this includes materials borrowed through OhioLINK and the library's media equipment.

All eligible materials will be automatically renewed six times. Items are ineligible for renewal if they have outstanding requests or if a user has reached the renewal limit. Some items such as course reserves and media equipment may also not be eligible for automatic renewal.

It depends. If you received a replacement notice, and then return the item there is no monetary fee. But if you've lost it you will be responsible for the replacement cost. Roesch/OhioLINK materials have a replacement cost of $125.00. Replacement costs for media equipment vary and depend on the item.

If you have a billed item on your library record you will be blocked from checking out items and a registration hold will be placed on your student account.

For questions or replacement alternatives, please call 937-229-4234.

Pay for lost materials

Lost or stolen flyer cards should be reported to Campus Card Services as soon as possible at 937-229-2456. You can also mark your card lost by logging in to MY ACCOUNT and marking it "Lost". In the evening or on weekends, lost or stolen cards can be reported to any dining services manager or supervisor. The owner of a lost or stolen ID card is financially responsible for all library materials borrowed on the card before its loss is reported to Campus Card Services.

All borrowers are liable for fines and processing fees whether or not mailed or emailed notices and invoices are received.
