This guide is intended to help on-campus and distance CSSA students with their coursework and research.

Using the Library from a Distance

If you are off-campus, you will need to know your ONID username and password (the same one that you use for Canvas).

If you come to campus and want to borrow books, please bring your OSU ID and a photo ID with you.

My Account : Borrowing and Renewing Books Online

Your library account is where you can:

  • See what you have checked out from OSU Libraries;
  • Renew items you borrowed from the OSU Libraries;
  • See what items you have out from Summit and when they are due;
  • Access your Interlibrary Loan account.

To access your library account, go to the library home page and click on My Account at the top of the screen.

Books Not at OSU or in Summit

For books that are not available in at OSU or in a Summit library, and for journal articles, you can request an Interlibrary Loan.

When you enter your account information, select the Status field which indicates you are either a Distance Education student or a Remote Faculty or Staff. Items that are not electronic will be mailed to you.

Interlibrary loans may be tentatively renewed online or by phone at (541) 737-4488. Please request renewals 3-5 days before the due date. You will be contacted if the library that owns the material does not allow the renewal.
