Renew your library books and check status of OhioLINK requests
Includes books and other media in US libraries. Used only for locating, not requests. Once you have found an item you would like, you have two options...
Use natural language and type a word or phrase. The search engine will automatically search multiple words as a phrase, but if it finds nothing, it will search for the words again, inserting AND between them.
If you enter your own keywords you may not always retrieve relevant results. For example, if you did a Subject Search for Native American Writers you would find nothing. You need to use the correct Subject Heading in a Subject Search. The words have to be typed in the exact order used by Library of Congress. For example:
American literature -- Indian authors -- History and criticism
Reference items can be print books, eBooks, or part of a database. Print reference books can be found on the Main Level of the AU Library, behind the Reference Desk. Reference eBooks and other sources are listed below. If you need any help finding or using reference materials, please contact a librarian.
