For Visitors

Roesch Library welcomes visitors and visiting scholars with educational and research needs. UD students, staff and faculty have priority for all services and computers.

  • Visitors may use library materials in the building. 
  • In order to borrow library materials for use outside of the building, visitors may purchase a visitor library card for $50 at the first-floor Information Point.
    • Dayton Metro Library, Greene County Public Library and Washington-Centerville Public Library cardholders can borrow UD items for free using SearchOhio.
    • State Library of Ohio cardholders can borrow UD items for free using OhioLINK
  • Media equipment is unavailable for visitor borrowing.
  • Members from OhioLINK institutions must present a valid identification card from their institution in order to borrow materials.

  • Visitors not currently affiliated with UD are limited to two visitor computers on the first floor. Visitors engaged in library research have priority on these computers.
  • In addition to the Internet, the visitor computers have access to most of the subscription-based research databases and other resources available from the library website.
  • Access to databases and e-resources from outside the library is not available to visitors due to licensing agreements. 
  • Visitor printing and copying is not available in Roesch Library. We suggest using campus Print and Copy Services in Marianist Hall 224.
