Access to Library Resources and Services are available for visiting AJCU faculty participating in the Passport program and may require your AJCU Passport Borrowers Card. If you do not have this card ask the staff at the circulation desk in the library about obtaining one. Bring the AJCU Borrowers Form completed at your home institution and your home institution's photo ID card with you. Please review the library's Notice of Responsible Use.
borrowing Services are available for materials in the XPLORE and OhioLINK library catalogs. XPLORE is Xavier's library catalog and OhioLINK is the combined library catalog for about 85 academic and public libraries in the State of Ohio. These materials may be requested online (help requesting). See borrowing privileges for information about loan periods, renewals, loan limits, overdue fines and replacement charges. XPLORE materials are picked up and returned to the circulation desk in Xavier's library; OhioLINK materials may be picked up and returned to Xavier or to another OhioLINK library more convenient for you (pickup anywhere help). If materials are overdue, it is more cost efficient to return them to Xavier's library. For materials not available through Xavier or OhioLINK see document delivery services.
