Heterick for Faculty and Staff

About OhioLINK

OhioLINK is a consortium of 120 academic libraries in Ohio. Members cooperatively purchase electronic resources such as databases and share physical resources such as books and DVDs. This means that if you need a book or other item that Heterick does not have but that another OhioLINK member library does have, you can request the book through OhioLINK and it will be sent to ONU for you to use.

To place a request:

  • locate the item in the OhioLINK catalog (link below)
  • click the green "Request" button
  • select "Ohio Northern U" from the drop-down menu
  • log in with your full first and last name and your ONU barcode, which is the 11-digit number on the front of your ONU ID card (please note that this is different from the off-campus login for library databases)
  • select "Heterick" from the Pickup Location drop-down menu
  • click "Submit"

If the item you are requesting has multiple parts (for example, multiple volumes), after you hit "Submit" you will see a screen where you can select the specific part you want. If you want multiple parts of the item, you will need to submit multiple requests.

When your request arrives at Heterick you will receive an email letting you know that your item is available to pick up.
