Borrowing from OhioLINK & SearchOhio
CCAD faculty and staff can borrow items from other OhioLINK libraries.
You can request items to come to the CCAD Library. They usually arrive within 3-4 days. You can also go to another OhioLINK library with your faculty/staff ID and check out..
Most books go out for 21 days, videos and dvds for 7. This may differ for SearchOhio items, depending on the home library.
You can renew books up to 6 times if there are no holds on the item. AV materials are usually not renewable. OhioLink books are eligible for auto renewal, but SearchOhio items are not.
Make sure you renew items BEFORE they are due. OhioLINK/SearchOhio will not allow you to renew overdue books.
If an OhioLINK item has not been returned after 30 days, the computer system assumes the item is lost and applies a $125.00 replacement fee. Fines will be waived when the items is returned or replaced.
Most e-books are listed in our catalog and in OneSearch (except for OhioLINK e-books), but you can search individual e-book collections, too. For help with downloading e-books, see the E-Books LibGuide.
