Automatic renewals have been set up for OhioLINK and SearchOhio materials. Items will be due in late August or early September depending on the item and patron type.

Heterick's fine-free policy on all Heterick, OhioLINK, and SearchOhio items remains in place.

POLAR & OhioLINK Catalogs

POLAR - Heterick Library Catalog

POLAR FAQ 

OHIOLINK Library Catalog

What is OhioLINK?

POLAR - Heterick Library's Catalog

POLAR is Heterick Memorial Library's catalog, which contains both our physical book collection as well as the e-books the library has access to. The above search box is set to allow users to search our catalog for these items. Physical items in the catalog list where in the library they are located, including their floor and call number, and electronic resources contain a link to allow users to access the source.

OhioLINK Catalog

OhioLINK is the state library consortia for Ohio. Library institutions that are members of OhioLINK share access to their resources with one another. This allows for members of those OhioLINK institutions to request resources from other OhioLINK institutions, if their home institution does not have the resources they are looking for. The above search box can be used to search the OhioLINK catalog, which indexes the various resources available at all OhioLINK member institutions.

E-book Databases

In addition to searching the POLAR and OhioLINK catalogs to find e-books, you can also search for them in our databases. The databases listed below all feature e-books that can be accessed and read online.
