Your OhioLINK account allows you to request print materials from other institutions. It functions differently from a typical online account where you do not have to log in to search the catalog. However, you will need your credentials to request items. The link to the OhioLINK library catalog is above. It is important to note that the online catalog is different from OhioLINK's research databases. To access the research databases, you need to know your library barcode number.
