Visitors to Xavier University may access some library resources and services. Please review the library's Notice of Responsible Use.

Borrowing Materials

Borrowing privileges are available for patrons with a current library card from a SWON or OhioLINK library. First-time borrowers may obtain a Xavier library card by presenting a valid photo ID and SWON-affiliated library card at the Connection Center in the Conaton Learning Commons (CLC). Library cards are issued for one year and may be renewed annually. Community visitors who do not have a SWON or OhioLINK library card, or a Xavier Alumni All-Card, are not eligible to borrow library materials.

Electronic collections such as research databases, electronic full-text journals, and electronic books, may be accessed only on campus using a personal laptop or mobile device. The library's XPLORE catalog may be accessed on-campus and from off-campus locations.
