Requesting Items in On-Site Storage

Certain items at the main library are located in on-site (basement) storage, which is not accessible to the public. This includes items like VHS tapes, DVDs, spoken word CDs, CDs from some books, pre-1900s books, specialty art books, and all microforms (including microfilm, microfiche, microcards, and ERIC documents).

To check out these items, you must request them online through KentLINK. To request an item, locate the item in KentLINK and select the Request button. When you request the item, you may choose the library location where you will pick up the item. (Alternatively, most ERIC Documents can be found in the ERIC Database.)

Items in On-Site Storage at the Main Library must be requested online through KentLINK at least one day in advance.

If there is an immediate need for an item located in Main On-Site Storage, you can ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk located on the first floor of the University Library.

We reserve the right to cancel any items that can be requested through the KentLINK system or the ERIC Database.

If you have any questions, please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk, or call Circulation at 330-672-7905.
