Finding Books and Audiovisuals in OhioLINK/Search Ohio
OhioLINK is the combined online catalog of more than 85 college and university libraries in the State of Ohio. Search Ohio is the combined online catalog of many public libraries in Ohio. Use OhioLINK/ Search Ohio to find books and audiovisuals that are not available at Xavier. You must go to the OhioLINK catalog before you can link to Search Ohio.
To access OhioLINK, click the Books tab on the library's homepage and begin searching. You can search OhioLINK by title, author, subject, keyword, or subject term.
Borrow an item from an OhioLINK library by clicking the green REQUEST button in the item's record.
In the first window select your institution, Xavier University ,and click the Submit Above Information button (not shown). In the second screen enter your username and password. From the Pickup Location drop-down box, select Xavier Univ.-Connection Ctr and click the green Submit button.
If you are searching for materials which are more likely to be held at public libraries (for example, popular novels or videos), use SearchOhio to find these materials. In addition, some OhioLINK libraries do not permit the borrowing of videos, whereas the public libraries in Search Ohio do.
First, search the OhioLINK Library Catalog for the item you want. Note the University of Toledo does not allow other libraries to borrow either one of the two copies of this video. Rather they reserve this video for local use only - their students, faculty, and staff. Click the SearchOhio button.
SearchOhio will locate the title you want. Click the green Request Item button.
The next instructions are similar to those you used to request OhioLINK materials. In the first window, select your institution, Xavier University, from the drop-down list and click the Submit above information button. From the Pickup Location drop-down box, select Xavier Univ.-Connection Ctr and click the green Submit button. Both OhioLINK and SearchOhio requested materials are available at the Connection Center desk in the Conaton Learning Commons in 3-5 business days.
