Renew items before they go overdue

Remember, you can renew your books using the My Account link on any library web page. You will need to enter your name and 14 digit bar code number from the back of your Muskingum College ID to view the items you have checked out. You have the opportunity to renew books up to four times (3 weeks each time) as long as no one else has placed a hold on the book.

Click on the Checked Out Items button to view the list. Then check the box to the left of the item(s) you want to renew and click the Renew Selected button. The system will show how many times you have renewed and the new due date.

It is your responsibility to renew items checked out. If you do not renew items, fines will start to accrue (50 cents per day). If you let the item go 21 days over due, you will automatically be charged a replacement fee ($85 for Muskingum book or $125 for OhioLINK book). Detailed information about fines and replacement fees can be found on the circulation policy page.

Please contact the Library at (740) 826-8152 if you have questions or if you are having problems renewing items.

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.

OhioLINK Library Catalog will be down on August 16

The OhioLINK Catalog will be unavailable on Thursday, August 16, beginning at approximately 11:00 a.m. due to an upgrade. The upgrade is expected to take a minimum of eight hours to complete. During this time you will not be able to search the OhioLINK catalog or place requests for books owned by other OhioLINK libraries.

This upgrade will not effect the Muskingum Catalog or OPAL Catalog. You will be able to request books from other OPAL libraries using the OPAL Catalog. Please contact Andrew Whitis if you have any questions.
