The Click & Collect phased retrieval and pickup service allows UC users to request printed library materials in the Library Catalog for pickup at designated locations. Requests made by 9:oo AM Wednesdays will be available for pickup between noon-4:00 PM Thursdays. Due dates have been automatically set for August 10. 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.

At this time, all UC Libraries' physical locations remain closed until further notice.

  • Library users should keep all library materials currently checked out. 
  • All UC materials in good standing (not overdue) at time of the closure have been renewed until August 10, 2020.
  • All materials in good standing from OhioLINK are being auto-renewed.
  • Anyone who had been billed for long-overdue materials can contact the circulation department to resolve. We can still accept credit card payments via the Libraries web page. 
  • If you must return print materials, a book return drop slot is available on the Walter C. Langsam Library building immediately outside of the main entrance lobby doors. During plaza construction, the drop slot is easiest to reach via the library lobby. When arriving via Woodside Drive/Library Garage, proceed to the 4th floor to enter the lobby. Proceed through the available door to exit the lobby and access the drop slot. 
  • 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.
