Oberlin College Libraries' Book Tips: OhioLINK& SearchOhio

OhioLINK and SearchOhio

Membership in the OhioLINK consortium entitles Oberlin faculty, staff, students, and Friends of the Library to request books and some other library materials (sound recordings, films, microfilm) directly from other libraries through the OhioLINK library catalog.

The materials are delivered to the Main Library and most requested items arrive within 3 business days, however delivery of items may be delayed during Fall 2021. OhioLINK participants also have access to the collections of a number of Ohio public libraries through the OhioLINK-SearchOhio partnership. Policies differ somewhat depending on which library system lends the material. Please don't hesitate to ask us if you have any questions by sending an email to
