All offices at the University will be CLOSED December 24th-January 2nd including the Michael Schwartz Library. We know that many of you will continue to need to do research or have a place to study so here are some options for whatever you may need:
Access to journals, ebooks, virtual reference desk, etc.
Visit us online at https://library.csuohio.edu/ for access to our Research Databases which will allow you to search 54,000 journals, some with full-text, browse over 90,000 e-books, or get access to dictionaries, encyclopedias, biographical sources, maps, quotations, statistics and much more at the Virtual Reference Desk.
If you have materials due during the time we are closed
Some materials, mostly OhioLINK books, may be due during the time we are closed. In order to avoid fines, you may renew materials online (if available), return materials to our book drop located on the plaza in front of Rhodes Tower, or return materials on January 3, 2011. Any materials that are returned after January 3rd, which have not been renewed, will accrue fines back to the date it was originally due.
Ordering OhioLINK books
OhioLINK materials can still be ordered here and picked up on campus, January 3rd. Don't want to wait? Use OhioLINK's pick-up anywhere service which allows you to have your materials sent to any of the over 80 OhioLINK institutions including Cuyahoga County Public Libraries (you may want to check with the institution you choose to verify their hours). To use pick-up anywhere, just change the Pickup Institution and Location when you are ordering your materials.
