Alumni library cards: Five great things

By Maureen Schlangen

<span id="docs-internal-guid-c40936df-77d4-fef8-2898-7e621158959c"><span>Now that alumni living in Ohio can register for free borrowing privileges in the University of Dayton Libraries, they&amp;#8217;ve got access to a wealth of knowledge, perks and conveniences. Here are five great things:</span></span>

If you live too far away to regularly visit Roesch Library, you will miss out on the coffee, the in-person book browsing and the terrific variety of quiet and technology-rich work spaces — but you still have access to OhioLINK. Instructions: Go to UD’s online catalog (flyers.udayton.edu). You can search by keyword, title, author and more. If we don’t have the book you’re looking for, click the “Search OhioLINK” button. This will connect you to the holdings of more than 100 OhioLINK member institutions. Click on a title and then the Request Item button, enter in your name and UD library card number, and a few days later, the items will be ready for pickup at the OhioLINK library of your choice.

But don’t forget to return them on time. Sure, we don’t have a diploma or a course registration to hold over unpaid library fines, but some things never change: Overdue library materials are a terrible thing to have on your conscience.
