Frequently Asked Questions

What if the book is checked out?
If a book is checked out, the Library Catalog will indicate when it will be returned. You then have two options. You can wait till the book gets returned to the shelf to check it out. Please be aware that the date that it lists as the return date is dependent upon the current borrower bringing it back. If that person forgets the return date could slide considerably. The other option would be to attempt to find the book through OhioLink/Search Ohio as this may result in a quicker delivery time than waiting for the return of the current book.

What if the book has a link instead of a call number?
The library has some items which which will not be on the shelves but instead available directly by clicking on them. Also Hiram College Library is a Federal Depository Library and may have resources from the Federal Government that are electronic. If you see “Electronic Resource” instead of a call number, click on it to view the item online.
