Searching for Books in OhioLINK

The OhioLINK library catalog provides access to books at over 89 college and research libraries.  Books can be delivered to the Newark, Pataskala, and Coshocton campus locations.  You can also request to have your books sent to another OhioLINK institution (such as Denison University, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, etc.) if it is more convenient to your location.  To begin searching OhioLINK, start on the OhioLINK library catalog homepage. 

You can search for books several different ways, including by keyword, or by the author or title of the book.  For this search, we will use a keyword search.  A keyword search allows us to locate any book that concerns our topic.

After selecting the search button, you will be brought to a list of results.  Each of these search results is related to our search of sports and steroids.  To see more information about a book, select the title. 

This will bring you to a page with the title and author information, as well as the availability of the item.  To request the book, select the green request button.

You will need to select your institution from the drop-down menu.  COTC students should select Ohio State U.

Next, you will need to enter your name, ID number, and select a campus.  COTC students should enter CT before their ID number.  

Once you have entered all of the necessary information, select the green request button.  Your OhioLINK book will arrive in 3-5 business days.
