Borrowing Services

Marian Library users may borrow books and media materials with a current University-issued ID or a special library card. If the material is not available at the Marian Library or Roesch Library, you can use the OhioLINK catalog to request books from another OhioLINK member institution. Books not found through OhioLINK can be requested through Interlibrary Library Loan. ILL use is restricted to current UD students, faculty and staff.

  • Review materials checked out and status of OhioLINK materials requested by logging into Your Library Info in the UD online catalog.
  • For assistance or more information call the Roesch Library reference desk at 937-229-4270, circulation/reserve desk at 937-229-4234 or the Marian Library at 937-229-4214.
  • Marian Library, Roesch Library and OhioLINK items that have been requested are held for ten days. If the patron who has requested the item does not pick it up within that time period, the item will be returned to its home institution.

For more specific information, see the complete list of University of Dayton Libraries borrowing policies, hours and services.
