What if the library does not have the materials I need?
Columbus State Community College is a member of OhioLINK, a state wide consortium of 121 private and public libraries at universities and colleges in the state of Ohio. CSCC students, faculty, and staff may request items from these institutions from OhioLINK, which will deliver those items to CSCC.
Columbus State Community College has partnered with SearchOhio to provide access to materials from forty public libraries in the state of Ohio, including CML. Items can be searched and requested at the SearchOhio catalog.
Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows current students, faculty and staff at Columbus State to borrow books from other library systems when said item could not be found in our library's collection, OhioLINK, or SearchOhio. Email a completed copy of our electronic form below to firstname.lastname@example.org to make an ILL request, or ask for a paper form from any library service desk.
If you have any other ILL questions, please contact Julie Dulaney at 614-287-2267.
