Who May Borrow OhioLINK Items?

Cleveland Institute of Art degree-program students and faculty, emeritus faculty, and most staff may borrow items from OhioLINK.

Requesting OhioLINK items

If an item is unavailable through our catalog, then it’s possible to borrow it through OhioLINK. Materials may be requested from other OhioLINK libraries for delivery to the CIA Library in approximately 3-5 business days. There is no fee for borrowing OhioLINK materials.

Once you have located the item you want in the OhioLINK central catalog:

  • Click on “request this item” link
  • Select “CWRU” as your institution and “Cleveland Institute of Art Lib” as your pick-up location
  • Type in your name and your library account number, and click “submit”

Borrowing privileges are suspended if the amount owed on your library account exceeds $15.00.

Using OhioLINK Databases

Access to the OhioLINK databases is limited to the CIA network.
