Roesch 2U

All faculty are automatically enrolled in the University Libraries document delivery service, Roesch 2U. 

There are three different kinds of requested materials that will be delivered to your department's administrative office:

  1. Roesch Library
  2. Interlibrary Loan
  3. OhioLINK

Deliveries are automatic unless you choose to opt-out of the Roesch 2U service.

If you do not want your materials delivered to your administrative office, and would prefer to visit the library to pick up your materials, please email and your name will be removed from the list. 

If you are in Roesch Library and would like to pick up your materials, even though you normally have them sent to your administrative office, you can still pick them up. Tell the staff member at a service desk that you normally get your materials through Roesch 2U, but would like to pick them up while you are in the building.

Your materials may not be available if they are in the process of being delivered or have not yet been retrieved off the shelves.

  • Deliveries occur twice per week on Tuesday and Thursday between the hours of 11 a.m.-3 p.m. 
  • Deliveries are paused during intersessions. Pick up your items at the first-floor Hello desks during library hours.
  • During the summer, delivery is by appointment only. Schedule delivery requests during the summer by contacting director Shane Plassenthal at or 937-229-4301.

All materials will be delivered to your department's administrative office or mailbox. We will not deliver directly to personal offices.

Books requested from Roesch Library and OhioLINK have standard due dates for faculty. Other books requested through Interlibrary Loan will vary based on the lending institution. Due dates will be visible on your materials.

No, it is the responsibility of each faculty member to return items back to Roesch Library on or before the date materials are due.
