How does OhioLINK requesting and borrowing with Safe Pickup work?
The MSJ Library’s membership with OhioLINK allows currently enrolled Mount St. Joseph University students, faculty and staff to find and borrow items held in university libraries throughout the state of Ohio. Items requested from the OhioLINK Central Catalog generally arrive to the MSJ campus within 5 to 7 business days. Once library staff receive your OhioLINK items by U.S. Cargo Delivery, they will process your requested items using the same Safe Pickup procedures used for MSJ Library requests. This means staff will check out your requested items to your library account and then package them in an envelope. The envelope will be marked with your name and placed on a pickup cart in the hallway just outside the entrance to the Library. You will receive a pickup alert to your MSJ email account. Note: items will be kept on the hold shelf for 10 days, after which time they will be removed if not picked up.
Once you are finished with your items, there are two drop off locations directly outside the Library’s interior and exterior doors for safe, contact free return of borrowed items. Additionally, due to COVID-19, all physical library materials will be subject to a 3-day quarantine period after they are returned to the MSJ Library.
