Accessing Library Materials in the Time of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted virtually all aspects of our daily lives, including academic research. Access to digital resources, such as ebooks, academic journals, primary source databases, and newspapers remain largely unaffected. Access to print materials, on the other hand, is restricted to library staff.

In addition, faculty and students may still request materials via OhioLink and Interlibrary Loan
