Library will be closed on Sunday, March 9

The Library will not open at 5 p.m. today as previously indicated. This is due to the continuing hazardous travel conditions and President Steele's email announcement earlier that Monday's classes have been canceled.

The Library will open at 8 a.m. on Monday.

Remember, you can use the Electronic Journal Center, Electronic Book Center, and over 100 subject specific research databases 24x7 on and off-campus.

OhioLINK requesting and keyword searching unavailable

10 a.m. Saturday update: Keyword searching in the OhioLINK Catalog has been fixed.

9:03 a.m Friday update: OhioLINK requesting has been fixed. Keyword searching is still not working.

Two unforeseen problems have developed from yesterday's upgrade to the OhioLINK Catalog. Keyword searching and the ability to request books from other libraries are currently not working. OhioLINK is working with the software vendor to fix these problems. Hopefully both features will be fixed by the end of the day.

You can still use the OPAL Catalog to find and request books from other OPAL libraries. Please contact Andrew Whitis if you have any questions.
