WorldCat lists books that are available at other libraries in the United States, and sometimes in other countries. If a book you want is not listed in the OSU Libraries catalog or at a Summit library, you might want to check WorldCat to see if the book is available at a library near you.
Generally, it will be faster to get the book from a local library or you can at least review it while you wait for the OSU copy to arrive.
Go to WorldCat.org. Type in the title of the book or keywords to describe your topic:
Click on the title of the book or item you want. You can also look to see who has other editions of the book by clicking on the View all editions and formats link.
To see if OSU has the item, click on FindIt@OSU. If you want to know if the book is in a library near you, scroll down and enter your zip code.
If there isn't a copy in your area, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request with the OSU Libraries and we'll borrow it for you from another library and mail it to you. You just need to mail it back to us.
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.
