ONU Law Review Resources: Finding Books

Finding Books



  • Online catalog shared between Taggart Law Library and Heterick Memorial Library
  • Searchable by keyword, title, author, subject, and other methods
  • Non-reserve materials at Taggart can be checked out for an entire semester without renewal; most non-reserve materials at Heterick check out for 3 weeks



  • Consortium of college and university libraries throughout Ohio
  • Accessible right from POLAR
  • Patron-initiated borrowing system(you can request items yourself)
  • Most items delivered to Circulation Desk within 2-3 business days
  • OhioLINK materials are loaned for a 3-week period and can be renewed up to 6 times through “My Library Account” in POLAR

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

  • For items you need that are not available through POLAR or OhioLINK
  • Staff-initiated borrowing system that accesses libraries across the country (you need to ask a librarian to borrow items through ILL)
  • Depending on item requested, turnaround time is generally 1-2 weeks

Citing Books

Rule 15 of the Bluebook governs the citation format for books, reports, and other non-periodical materials. 


Remember: Citations for journal purposes adhere to the white pages of the Bluebook, not the blue pages.
