UC Online Library

Welcome to UC Online Library! This portal directs you to essential resources and services to enable online research and scholarly work, as well as information on changes in services and access due to our current facilities closure.

The Click & Collect retrieval and pickup service (now expanded to a daily service!) allows UC users to request printed library materials in the Library Catalog for pickup at designated locations. Requests made daily Monday-Friday are typically available the next business day. Users should wait for an e-mail pickup notice before coming to the library to pick up requested items. There is a limit of 10 items per request/25 a week.  

Due dates have been automatically set for February 15. When searching for print materials in the Library Catalog, items with the status of “Held By Library” are available for request. Items from one library location cannot be requested for pickup at another library location.

Using Library Materials

  • Due dates have been extended for all materials to February 15, 2021. 
  • If you must return print materials, a book return drop box is available in the Walter C. Langsam Library lobby.
  • As we are following REALM (Reopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums) Project recommendations, all library print materials will be quarantined six days before being processed and made available to users. This applies to both returned library materials and those requested through OhioLINK or Interlibrary Loan.
  • DO NOT LEAVE equipment items outside of the library. If you absolutely must return equipment, please contact Public Safety at (513) 556-1111 in advance and arrange to meet an officer.
